The Devil Has Taken You - Poem by RIC BASTASA

when you're so good
he tells you, nothing significant happens to your life
you're nothing but a straight line on paper

the devil continues, try me, i give you everything you need
fame, fortune, life eternal

the angel is silent, trusting you,
that you do not take side with the comfort of some deceptive lines

but woe to you, the angel weeps,
you have taken the side of the devil who now rejoices in hell

another one comes
open the gates, give him the best, for now we shall take him

he shall bathe in that ocean of fire that never stops.
