The Devil’s Playground

“The pleasures of the world,” used to excite me
I couldn’t wait to be a part of it when I got
old enough to make my own decisions
everything about it looked inviting,
and almost everyone I knew was into it;
none had anything horrible to say
about it, except “the good came with the bad,”
that average mind mentality; I didn’t know
too many people who walked away from it
without later returning for more;
the world is so irresistible
it keeps the crowd entertained 24/7.
