A Sin is a Sin

Foreword: I wrote this after seeing a 7 deadly sin themed live mic event advertised within the Instagram poetry community.


A sin is a sin is a sin is a sin

It matters not who does the committing

You can't turn back time, do the job of the divine

Tear up the charge sheet, pretend it's a lie.


A sin is a sin is a sin is a sin

No redacted version here, deny where you've been

Screw up that page

To throw in life's bin.


A sin is a sin is a sin is a sin

God didn't miss it and blink

He knows what's he's seen

The serpent, the fruit mankind's bad dream?


A sin is a sin is a sin is a sin

Progenitor fruit took it and ate

Fell for deception, really believing

Blinkers were lifted, saw obvious deception realisation too late.


A sin is a sin is a sin is a sin

And yes if Eve had listened to him

Would the world still be tripping

Over itself on discarded vats of sin so full to the brim?


For a sin is a sin and so on and in

The end it's written down, trace where we've been

In letters and words as a warning is given

Ignore, nor acknowledge, leaves sin unforgiven.
