Bestow not I a wicked kiss,
Upon thine lips of virtue remiss.
Thou harbors ignoble intention
Thus perpetuating angelic descension

O serpent with lusting iniquity
Ventured to an ascended ubiquity
Befallen from heavens domain
Whispers temptuous mine unworldly name

Molten eyes of which to beguile
Charmed with a sharpened smile
Offering tokens of undying love
Likened to  the heavens above

Hush now mine disquieted heart,
Poisoned with ardor's bittersweet dart
Impaled deep within quickened chest,
Divinity cascades forth mine breast

Father, amend this ardor sting
Descend upon healing wing,
Disinherit mine heart's plight
With thine divine guiding light

Cast down thus serpent for said crime,
For illicit acts wickedly sublime.
Thefting intentions posthaste depart,
Remedy mine errant jestine heart.
