Jack's Pact

Jack's Pact


There once was a pirate named Jack,
Who struck with the devil a pact.
But when his accord
He could not afford
The devil took Jack and his pack!

The moral of Jack and his pack
Is clear: Give the devil No pact!
If you can't afford 
To strike an accord
Hold fast what you have--not your lack!

    Neat take on Paula's "pact" contest, Deborah. Yeah, the problem with not making pacts, is that evil can wear angelic wings....can get quite confusing! Best wishes in the contest!

    There is a moral in this story (or perhaps an immoral...) In either case, funny... Terry
