Snake's Pit

by amada



We are the creed of the seven deadly sins

Scorching in the hollow of your fright

Sovereign we reign in earthy wins

But venom drips consecrates all our rites

Scorching in the hollow of your fright

We, the dim collectors of mundane gains

But venom drips consecrates all our rites

In our pagan pit, sovereign we do reign.

We, the dim collectors of mundane gains

Sssssss, our tongues feast in your spite

In our pagan pit, sovereign we do reign

We thrive in the bleakness of your light.

Sssssss, our tongues feast in your spite

Hungry for each trace of burnt stain

We thrive in the bleakness of your light

And will hiss as we wrap into your chains.

Just a whack idea that came into my mind: Seven snakes representing the seven sins: Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Laziness, Wrath, Envy, Pride. I apologize if I offend some of the readers. This is just a creative expression of my deranged mind.
