The Original Bad Boy

This weekend's Trifextra challenge: write 33 words inspired by the Rolling Stones song, Sympathy for the Devil."


Feted on film, celebrated in song,
I’m the “
It feels good—who cares if it’s wrong?”
Publicly pious, your mouth denies me.
Ah, but your wicked heart satisfies me.
You’ll be mine.
Soon.

    but you wrote him so well, it's hard to resist him and hard to resist you when you write this well.

    Damn.
    ;) TGIF Ivy.

  2. This definitely raced my heart beat, Ivy - I’m the “It feels good—who cares if it’s wrong?”. It is too good!

    1. Thanks, Janna! This prompt made me think of people who claim to hate the devil but act a lot like him. Haha! As soon as I saw that photo, I knew it was perfect.

    1. I have to make a confession. I started posting my entry on my phone. When I wrote that line, I typed "Pubically pious." Didn't catch it until I saw it on my laptop. Changes the meaning a bit, don't you think? :)

  10. In the hands of an excellent writer loke you, there is a certain economy to the language that helps to add layers of meaning to each word. Like others have mentioned, I liked "publically pious" and, well, I like "pubically pious", too. It all works in your talented hands, Ivy. :)

    1. That would be...."an excellent writer like you", not "loke you. Geesh! My iPad keyboard has just about had all it can take. :)
