A Decima

As sure as night follows the day.
Man is never infallible
Nature made sure he’s gullible
Humans will always go astray
There’ll be foibles and flaws at play
The Demons in hades all smile
As men make mistakes all the while.
The devil tallying his toll
Delighting in his crop of soul.
He’ll have them all, soon to defile.

For today’s Décima Ronovanwrite’s has asked us to rhyme the C lines with SMILE. I have also linked this week’s Haiku Challenge words DAY AND FLAW, to the décima.
