An Unsound Vice - Poem by Blu Jayde

It's outlawed. Prohibited.
Morally unsound.
It's taboo & verboten
It's bringing you down.

You're standing in quicksand
You wallow in mire
You're dating the devil.
You're playing with fire!

It's a secret. Unspoken.
It's a character flaw.
It's seductive, alluring
It's the Unlucky Draw.

It's banned and it's barred
It's illicit and wrong
Contrary to law
It just doesn't belong.

It's out of the question
It's last on the list.
It's just not an option
That deserves to exist.

It's under the table
It's over your head.
It's felonious nature
May render you dead.

It's forbidden. It's toxic.
Your ticket to Hell.
It plays on your senses
And makes you unwell.

It seduces your senses
Inhabits your brain.
The ultimate setback
A break in the chain.

The roadway to Nowhere
The doorway of Doom.
It's totally tragic
and clouded in gloom.

It's a habit worth breaking
Don't go with the flow.
It's the Scourge of a Lifetime.
Say Goodbye! Let it go!
