Temptation Can Rise Unless You Are Wise!

So dVerse wanted me to get tempting today here at my bay, I was tempted not to, as typing with one arm sucks at my zoo.But I avoided that temptation and away the cat went, for it was too tempting not to vent.

Temptation lurks within us all,
Preaching its alluring call.
Even to the aged and wise,
It still gives tantalizing cries.

Would it not be sweet,
To land that tasty treat?
There has to be more to life,
Than just one little old wife.

Would it not be grand,
To take that truthful stand?
The garage door was ajar,
When I borrowed that $500,000 car.

Would it not be fun,
To go buy a gun?
Target practice is surely needed,
Pfft safety need not be heeded.

It has to be your day.
A match will surely display.
Give it one more yank.
You don't need any money in the bank.

That guy you truly hate,
He brought on such a fate.
Just put your foot to the floor,
Wham! He'll bother you no more.

Go and be so cool.
Don't act like a fool.
Just take that harmeless drug,
You'll easily be able to quit and no hole will be dug.

Look it's just sitting there,
No one will be aware.
Grab the loot and go.
You need it more at your show.

Insurance is there for a reason.
It isn't some kind of treason.
Burn the place to the ground.
And a hefty payout will be found.

Listen to these tantalizing cries,
They are a blessing in disguise.
By supporting such a calling,
Your life won't be so appalling.

Now I have to go for my temptation is continuing to grow. I just can't help myself. I'm addicted like a shoe making elf. I have to use it when in need. For it is the place to do the deed. Oh hell, what do I care? It is only Pat at my lair. Temptation has come to pass as gas came out my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  6. ha. at least you are not addicted to shoe making...i hear that is hard work, makes the fingers bleed, you are right how temptation can make us a bad seed...and we all have those moments when it is great, and we have to be vigilent or become something we hate...

  7. Temptation is so very keen
    To those who are a jelly queen
    If you are a muffin middle
    To sweets you have to say ski-diddle
    If you're trying not to smoke
    Have one more, just a toke
    It's not easy to refrain
    One straightjacket will sustain

    interesting thoughts to ponder this day
    as you sit by your bay..I just wanted
    to come say hey..have a beautiful day..

    But, don't lay in any hay..the pitchfork of temptation
    might get you in that rhyming butt..having fun under your sun..

  17. It's always worth it at the time
    Until we realize the crime
    And then we say "Gosh darnit, why'd I go and sin?"
    But regret the urges to which we did not give in.
    So we might as well let temptation win and to it, say "WTF", and just give in!

  22. To be human is to face temptation.
    It's like that across the nation.
    The answer is not really new,
    just know right from wrong and which you'll do!
    Don't blame wrong upon your mother,
    sister, dad and not your brother!
    The choice is always up to you,
    right or wrong, it's what you do~
