Don’t Play With the Devil

Don’t Play With the Devil

On the road to sin city

Drenched in full gold

Call the door man

Cos I hear the devil’s coming through

Watch the deck

Up high in this tower of babel

Lost souls, my people cry: lost souls

Burst them stars out

Pour more shots

Vodkar’d out


Red eyes, I see the devil now

Watch them, all them devils

Coming out, watch them


Red eyes, see the demon in the devil

I know, yes I know

He too fears for his own soul

    Hey, I’ve noticed you post alot. This poem looks unfinished. I didn’t get anything out of it.

    Let me be honest. I’d prefer you craft one of your poems to perfection than to just post every single half one of them.

    Sometimes it’s better to just have that one good piece than to have 2 bad pieces.

    I know you’re always writing so keep doing so.

      @ufuomaotebele lol. If you can be exact in why you think this poem is unfinished that’ll help.

        I didn’t find what I said funny. Clearly you think you got it and your piece is okay so I’m sorry for aiming at you. Remind my ass to stay away from your posts.

          @ufuomaotebele. You examined my work and gave a critical insight of which i do appreciate. but I think I have the right to further inquire on why you think it read like so. Abi don’t you want me to get berra? Don’t take my lol too serious.

    The ominous tone was alright, and I like your use of repitition to build intrigue.
    “lost souls… lost souls” “Watch them… watch them” “I know, yes I know.”
    The last line though… It was catchy, yes.
    Appropriate? Weeeeell… I think you just threw that in for an effect.

    The poem is nice.

      @anakadrian thanks for reading. I wanted to capture being drunk and seeing the evil at that very moment.

    Nice look at the morality of drinking. Most drunks feel theyre having fun or that drinking is lifting them from thier pain when indeed it may be leading them to thier demise. I like it
