Those Purchased Temptations - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Sometimes that which is dangled to tease,
And tempting with ease on the eyes to please...
Will eventually rust.
Turn to dust with a leaving of many disgusted.
And those extended payments,
Agreed upon to maintain a good credit rating...
With no relief from the stress good credit gets,
Addictions to teases increases.
Being able to afford those purchased temptations,
That's why it is best to stay away from those dreams,
Others have to impress.
And keep one's own with a patience known,
Regardless who addresses expectations...
With mounting debts they regret but wont admit.
