The Devil Moved in Next Door

Bait dangles as prospects lure
Attempts to whittle the façade 
The devil moved in next door

Flawless exploits and flashy couture  
Your coy routine makes me applaud
Bait dangles as prospects lure

Veiled summons via feral detour
My thoughts tainted, sanity flawed
The devil moved in next door

Confident acts seem insecure
Roguish gazes assail and prod 
Bait dangles as prospects lure

True intentions emerge obscure 
Glacier-like egos need be thawed
The devil moved in next door

Your ignorance clutches my cure
Maze of games, packed with fraud
Bait dangles as prospects lure
The devil moved in next door

    If the devil made you do it then I'm glad he moved next door...he inspired a funny and biting villanelle... (love those glacier-like egos!) Congratulaions, Natalie! - Tim

    Awesome to see you doing a villanelle, Natalie. What inspired it? A contest? Or has a little devil really moved in next door to you? I think those devils are everywhere these days!!
