Seven Deadly Sins - Poem by BlacknessRose ...

And Greed
Seven deadly sins beware
They do anything except care
Seven deadly sins you see
They are chained don't let them free
#1 is Lust
Love's not a must
She is fueled by desire
Looks are elegant and they're dire

#2 is Envy
Everyone else he wants to be
Jealousy raging in his eyes
Even though it's hidden with lies

#3 is Gluttony
He eats anything his eyes can see
He is plagued with over consumption
When he eats himself he will be done

#4 is Sloth
Laziest, slow cough
Apathy is her trait
Staying chained is her fate

#5 is Wrath
Following down a destructful path
Desolation left after rage
He's forever in a cage

#6 is Pride
Only showing his really good side
Full of Vanity, no fear
His favorite asset is a mirror

#7 is Greed
All the warnings he doesn't heed
All he wants is wealth and money
He'll lose it all, that's very funny

Seven Deadly Sins fell prey
Well now they'll just have to pay
