An Argument Poem by Thomas Moore

An Argument

Rating: 3.1

I've oft been told by learned friars,
That wishing and the crime are one,
And Heaven punishes desires
As much as if the deed were done.

If wishing damns us, you and I
Are damned to all our heart's content;
Come, then, at least we may enjoy
Some pleasure for our punishment!

Wishing If there is greed, In there is desire for exchanging That's a crime....yes crime there is unpeace And unpeace is damnation
