Will you be deceived?
Even though you know you're not supposed to tell.
I am the one who makes you beat your wife down,
Even though she's three months pregnant and helpless.
I am the one who encourages you to harm your body
by inhaling substances that will make you lose control.
I am the one who will make you take another man's wife as your own,
whilst your own wife sits at home.
I am the one who will say its OK when you take thousands of pounds
from the company account to finance your new car.
I am the one who will make you hoard riches for yourself,
when many are in need worldwide.
I am the one who makes you harbour resentment and not forgive
the people that wronged you several months ago.
I'm the one who makes you use %&*% profanity and tell crude jokes,
even though you know it's not morally right.
I give you a dose of deception
and you fall for it.
All I do is plant a little thought in your mind,
the rest is up to you.
Will you entertain the thought or get rid of it?
You can duck and hide but I will find you.
Only those whose minds are renewed,
and filled with His powerful Word,
have any hope of ever defeating me.
Who am I?
You may ask.
