Trouble

Trouble

Deep down inside
Passed the belly and beyond the soul
There you will find trouble
A place where the Devil makes his home
Outside the realm of reason
Where conspirators gamble their fate
Plotting demise against another
Substituting fiction for fact
Inflicting undue injury and hardship
Where pain begins to grow its ugly roots
A trouble born of jealousy and vindictiveness 
Of resentment and animosity
Of selfishness and bitterness
Of paranoia and vengefulness
A game of poker where the joker is wild
Where the ante is one’s ultimate fate


Thank you,
Joseph Pede
