David Harris

Tempted

I walk down the street
A pretty woman passes
I stop, turn and stare.
Her bottom wiggles
Oooh, I’m tempted
Then my conscience kicks in
To remind me that
I have a wife, three kids and a cat

    what does a cat do with this situation? When we walk in the crowd, only a few people would make us to turn our head to see them again with or with out doing something inside..Being faithful to our oaths is a noble character..

    Oaths we have taken for our country, oaths we have taken during graduation, Oaths we have taken during our marriage and many more..

    Thank you for sharing..Congratulations David Harris..Keep up with your oath..

    Especially the cat! Always the first consideration. A lovely account of a daily experience. Still we have to thank the girls for those lovely wiggles which feed our momentary fantasies. Well deserved poem of the day, David. Congrats

    Oh but thank goodness for conscience! We're all tempted at times, but it is our conscience that keeps us in place.
    Loved the poem as usual, Theo

    You're never too old to look! A friend once said, 'I don't care where you do your shopping, but do your buying at home! '. That has always stuck with me. Fun read, David - thanks!

    There's an old saying, David. Just because you have ordered your meal doesn't mean you can't look at the menu... And like Melvina says, there's no harm in it and shows you're still alive.

    I laughed at the very end line '....and a cat'....?

    Love, Fran xxx

    Ahhh that's sweet, well at least you're tempted and that's as far as it goes. I think this is quite normal, shows your still alive and well. I've been known to take a peak at those beautiful, pert bums, then a smile comes across my face, maybe a little chuckle as I walk by the gent. My husband liked to look at the pretty girls and I'll say it again, I liked and still like those georgeous bums. Enough said, wonderful poem David. a big (10) --Melvina
