Treasure Island

David Harris

(18 June 1945 / Bradfield, England)

Heavy Price To Pay


Temptation beckons us with open arms
no matter where we are.
Ours is to resist those arms
and the allure they might bring.
To heed to our desires
may hold a heavy price to pay.
Best we ignore temptation
and move well out of its way.

Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
