Iniquity City

Let's take a drive to a city where the sins abound.
Let's take a drive to a city where there's nothing holy around.
Let's take a drive to a city where evil resounds.
Let's take a drive to a city that is world renowned.

This despondent place will get to you if you overstay your time.
This is a place where your darkest desires are not a crime.
It may seem great, but it's immoral on the inside.
Get out before it consumes you.
Let's head to destination abomination.

Disguised with lust, greed, and gluttony, this place is a disease.
This city presents opportunities you'll never sieze.
When you step in, you're met with a feeling of unease.
When you step in, you're met with wants that you can never appease.

Don't get caught up in the storm, lest you lose your faith.
This city will suck you dry. This city will feed on you like a wraith.
This city was baptised in the fires of sin.

This atrocity will take you down if you stay for too long.
If you even think of coming, you better be strong.
This wicked city will string you along.
Leave here before it consumes you.
Let's head to destination abomination.

How can people willingly lose their morality for momentary pleasure?
How can people knowingly give up their life for an eternity of pain without measure?
They gamble their lives away, and yet they still want to stay.
They have all lost their way. They must know they have to pay.
Such a savory taste to take in.
There's a reason they call this place the City of Sin.

This monument to the dark inside us will be our demise.
Don't trust those around you, and never believe your eyes.
This is the place where the road to righteousness dies.
Escape before it consumes you.
Let's head to destination abomination.

I know for a fact that I don't deserve half of the Five Star Ratings I got on some other pieces I wrote, but I don't feel that this deserves One Star. I can assume one of two things.

1- Whoever rated this couldn't handle the fact that this wasn't another tale of romance, relationships, and the same overdone drivel that everyone has seen enough or.

2- Whoever rated this was just some blind, God worshipping follower who didn't like the fact that I exposed the ugly truth of some of... (more »)
