    So you want a piece of my pie
    I've got blueberry, apple
    And cherry surprize
    so come and get a piece
    Of my treat
    I've got enough to go around
    So lets eat
    Hmm, now that you've
    Had a piece of my pie
    Let me tell you about
    The filling inside
    I mixed it with all sorts of things
    That I think would make you complete
    But all the things God
    Does'nt want you to eat
    So let me tell you about
    A few ingredinents or two
    I started with your body for
    Which I used as a bowl
    Then I poured in the dirt to
    Make the pie crust mold
    I stirred it together using your
    Tears and your douts and
    Even your fears
    I stirred in your depression
    And even some of your pain
    I poured in your guilt
    And lots of shame
    I poured in some envy
    Oh so sweet
    I poured in some lust
    My pie is almost complete
    I poured in some greed
    And some hate
    It is almost time to bake
    A couple more ingredients
    Just will do
    To complete my pie
    And then we are through
    I mixed in so low-selfsteem
    Who's going to love or like me
    Oh Please!
    I poured in some drugs to
    Stop the pain
    Now are you going insane
    There is so much more to
    Make my pie complete
    I'll save it for the next time
    We meet
    You've just had a piece of the devil's pie.

    There's something quite dark yet brutally honest about this scribe. I think about how many times I eat this pie, ****...I'm guilty! thank you for the reality check!
