A devil poem

In depictions of the devil
menacing looks — half human
A cauldron of women stirred,
someone dunked & drowned,
someone hung upside down,
archbishops, cardinals & priests
in the throes of beasts
Pan making it with a goat
What song shall we set to this? A sultry one?
A frail monk is in his underwear & a halo
being pitchforked & pronged
It is also shown that in heaven & holiness
there is a hierarchy that descends into hell.
