A deal with the Devil never turn out well
How many the fool who learned this on their way to hell
Not here referring to a written contact for the soul
Instead what is given up to pursue an ignoble goal
Worse when attained by ignoble means
As harmless and innocuous as these actions may seem
This is the Devil, those base pursuits
Money, power, and isolation and those who follow suit
The Devil is the selfish beast in all people with a price
A level they will sacrifice what they know is wrong vs right
There is a price to be taken, naught doth come free
If you sell your soul, wherefore will happiness be?
I love poetry.
