Crooked Horn

Wednesday Words

Grab that old devil

And let him know

What word is next? Gone? Born? Done?
These words have been simmering on the back burner for almost a year.  One evening last October, I stumbled upon a great riff.  The riff will probably receive a dedicated post at some point. This phrase about the crooked horn showed up with the riff.  It all fits perfectly.  The problem is that I have no idea where it is going.  I have been chasing the macabre and it isn’t going anywhere.  It occurred to me that I should define the old devil.  Maybe he is a metaphorical old devil.  Who is he? What does he represent?  
If you were to grab the metaphorical old devil in your life and put your boot on his/her throat, what is the one thing that you would need to say?
