Top definition
A bargain made or done for present gain without regard for future cost or consequences.
A pact made with the Devil—selling one’s soul in order to gain power, knowledge, wealth, beauty, youth, or some other desired goal. The theme is an old one: one may gain short-term delights, but the Devil comes to collect in the end. One must eventually ‘pay the piper’ – bear the consequences.
