The Whisperer

Do you know that thing where the devil whispers into your ear and you think that his voice is your own thoughts? It’s a fairly well-known thing, I believe. It’s a well-known phenomenon. It’s been known for a long time that this is what the devil can do. What I’m trying to say is that you’re quite possibly familiar with this general idea. You’ve probably heard it before. Well, what I’m wondering is if I’m writing all this as a result of thoughts that are coming into my head, then how do I know that this isn’t coming from the devil? More importantly how do you know? When the devil whispers, huh? When the devil whispers in your ear. When he whispers. When he whispers in your ear. He’s got a lot to whisper about, that’s for sure! He’s got plenty to say, that’s one thing you can rely on. You know that thing, you know that thing. Okay so I know it seems that your thoughts are your own and that they’re not Satan’s thoughts that he is putting into your mind – I know that’s how it seems. Of course that’s how it seems – that’s the whole trick of it, after all. That’s the trick of it and I’d be the first to admit that it’s a very clever trick. Diabolically clever, you might say! The devil is not stupid, after all – we all know that. Joe Soap might be stupid, the man in the street might be stupid, but that’s the one thing the devil isn’t. Oh no, he’s not stupid. We have all been hypnotised by the whispers that come into our heads. We are being led like lambs to the slaughter; we are being led like lambs to the kebab house. Does anyone suspect, I wonder? Does anyone suspect? Is there anyone who ISN’T jumping on the bandwagon? We are all pretty quick at jumping on bandwagons I guess and there’s no point in denying it. There’s no point at all in denying it! We’re like lambs being led to the slaughter, after all. We are full of trust, full of trust. We trust any voice that comes into our heads – we will jump onto any old bandwagon. What society after all, but a big dirty old bandwagon? Does anyone ever stop to ask, ‘Hey buddy, where is this bus going to?’ Does anyone? Does anyone at all? Does anyone stop to ask? We just see everyone else jumping on the bus and so we do too! We’re afraid of being left out, you see. We’re afraid of being left behind – I can understand that. You have to jump on quick, right? Push and shove, push and shove. Make sure you get on. It’s a dog eat dog world after all. No one stops to wonder where the bus is going! It’s the Donner Express, that’s what it is! Wait, wait, the bus is going off without you! There was no room for you. ‘Hey buddy where’s this bus going?’ you ask, ‘can somebody please tell me?’ The bus is going off without you and you’re left with Shaitan’s voice resounding in your head, telling you lies as usual…
