The Faustian Compact

by Venky

Casting aside conscience and booting out morals for good measure

Engaging in debauchery, decadence and Bohemian pleasure

Living life to the “full” with nary a care for an ensuing sunrise

Paying scant regard to the threat of paying a Faustian price

Possessed by a Charlatan Spirit that to discretion cared two hoots

As the very Devil incarnate within began taking root.
