My Easy Evil

I like my easy evil
It helps me to fit in
Most people never notice
Don’t even think it’s sin
I cheat and hold long grudges
I backbite, envy, covet
Mine is an easy evil
I don’t even think much of it
A casual look at things ‘quite naughty’
A glance at things forbidden
This evil is so easy
I hardly keep it hidden
I don’t commit real murder
At least no one has died
I do spread rumors and gossip
So, who’s to know I lied?
Adultery is far from me
I just like to watch it done
It’s just TV entertainment
It’s free, it’s there, it’s fun
So it is the easy evil
Without worry or remorse
After all this is my life
It is I who set my course

Proverbs 3:7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

Psalm 101:3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes
