TEMPTED IN COLD BLOOD

temptation _ _husband_, a user's guide(1).jpgWho never falls into the claws of dark chocolate
Against cries for healthy health
Who never pushes the million tasks till later
Against sermons on procrastination
Who never stays in bed, dawn till dusk
Against Donne’s poetry on the brevity of time
What man never looks below that heaving cleavage
Against the saying that looking is adultery
What woman never trades her youth for luxury
Against the raging theme of ‘prime is life’
What child never curses that mean elder
Against the order that obedience is tough?

In all our toughness, we are tried
To fall below the rules and norms
To betray our spirits and the universe
Until we all are one, tempted in cold blood.
