I've always been drawn to stories of deals with the devil, whether literal or metaphorical. I sometimes feel as though some of the medications I take to manage chronic illness are a sort of Faustian bargain, though perhaps that analogy would be even more apt for someone healthy using steroids for better athletic performance or using a supplement to try to improve their memory or alertness.

Deals with Devil led to "Deviltry on Steroids." Written in unrhymed tercets, this poem explains how athletes learned to abuse substances to enhance performance, with a little infernal assistance.
