Twas on a Sunday morning,
the devil approached a man,
intending to nab his soul,
there was not another plan.

The man was game for a deal.
The devil did his bidding,
one hundred thousand dollars.
The man said, "are you kidding?"

The devil, surprised at this,
up'd it to a quarter mil.
"God offered me a million,"
said the man, who knew the drill.

The devil, frustrated, said,
"alright then, I'll double it,
but that's my final offer."
The man agreed, and then split.

He looked over the man's soul,
stamped upon it the devil's seal,
and could not help but think that
he got the raw end of the deal.

LOL! That's what he gets for making deals with people you don't know! Another keeper, my friend!

I rather like this...too often we forget that the so called evil one is not all powerful. For obvious reasons, I kept hearing Charlie Daniels singing as I read this.

Hmm, me think's Lucipher is more cunning than this, Brett. He will give us the whole world in exchange for our soul. Imagine that! He offered a starving and thirsty Christ kingdoms. A million dollars seems a cheap sell - out. But then again, who was the guy? Aha...the mystery, eh? Could it be...?

I'm fascinated by anything with a Faustian theme and "Selling of a Soul" doesn't disappoint. The twist of an ending was droll.
