I can resist anything but temptation. Oscar Wilde


Oh the horror of sweet temptation
It can lead to one’s damnation
Its lure induces one with its appealing persuasion
It can breed on a man’s own aspirations
But its charm can become a terrible distraction
It can sidetrack a man’s mind to diversion
And cause him to lose his concentration
One might say its compulsion is a horrible disruption
And therefore a mighty source of sheer frustration
Are you tempted?

THIS IS A GREAT, UNIQUE WORK...AND YOU ARE SO RIGHT. THE VERY THING THAT CAN 'LURE' ONE TO TEMPTATIONS...ARE THE NEGATIVITIES OF IT. WELL DONE AND ENJOYED. THANKS FOR SHARING, LEW. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

Awesome write, Lew.
GOD BLESS YOU

Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader) 3/8/2011
You phrased this ingenuous little poem in a manner that the temptation you speak of could be anything from a sexual allure or what channel to watch on television.
Reviewed by George Carroll 3/8/2011
Splendid
