Abandon Hope

Come on in, no need to be afraid 

Time for you to join in my show 

It's not like any show, any man made 

In the end, you can guess where you'll go 



Tell us all your sins, share them with me 

What naughty guilty secrets are your crime 

A trip down to Hell, your reward will be 

I'm going to have a devil of a time 



No one is innocent, with me as your host 

Dirty tricks, oh yes, I can do it so well 

I will take sinners with me, oh I have to boast 

All of you, are coming with me, back to Hell 



But wait, we seem to have a special guest 

Doesn't matter, I've rigged every single game 

I will never loose, well, I'm simply the best 

Come play "Abandon Hope", Satan is the name 



Oh no, it's him, it's just not fair 

Why can't he just leave me alone 

Here he comes now, with his staff and long hair 

He never lets me win, it chills me to the bone 



I only want one day, is that too much to ask? 

Just let me win, let me have that desire 

Oh well, to send me back will be his task 

Time for me to return to the pits of fire

    Oooh, very creative, Chris. The devil always seeks to win and you really gave him an evil methodology of persuasion. Best wishes in the contest. Love, Carolyn
