Demons that purr

hiding from myself  
like some pitiful elf      
poor timid me      
drinking herbal tea      
filled with burning lava      
maybe I need more kava      
strutting my cojones      
but they're just phon'ae's      
and all that's left is meek      
my fear does reek      
the feral demon inside      
is just a kitten that sighed      
but stand aside        
for my timid has died      
my inner demons' now vetted      
and demands to be petted      
.      
or else

co·​jo·​nes = kə-ˈhō-ˌnās [Plural verb; balls, nerve] rhymes with my made up word phon-eas [phony = phon+A + plural + phon-eas]. Almost phonetically identical and I thought this was clever of me but you sort of needed to grow up in So Cal to get the word play and rhyme, so I didn't want you to miss it. Spanish slang and Robert Louis Stevenson hand in hand.
