 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

The Taste of Sin

Sinners love the taste of sin,
As they relish every bite;
Swallowing slowly within,
Fulfilling their appetite.

No matter of what their lust,
Regardless of what their need;
Idolatry is where they trust,
Whatever may be their greed.

But their food will turn sour,
Causing poison deep inside;
Excessively they devour,
For all warnings they defied.

So very soon they will die,
In the clutches of the snake;
Egoism makes them lie,
For it is God they forsake.

More so with having conceit,
And for their love of money;
Never to see for their deceit,
The land of milk and honey.
