Sin

Sin's a siren.  Sin brings pleasure
A tempting fruit grows from that tree
Within its walls there is a treasure
Of pain and death and agony
And though its hosts are always killed
Its appetite is never filled
So they dance the dance of catacombs
With ghosts and ghouls and dead mens bones
What a party that must be
Boring worms quite literally

    I'll look and see and let you know. Also, let me know of poems that you have written that I haven't commented on yet. You have more poems so it will be much easier to find poems of yours that i haven;t commented on.

    So much truth in so few words, Jon...where are you? I was reading one of my old poems on which you commented and I figured I'd come pay a visit only to find that you've not posted in a while. Hope that all is well and that you'll be posting more great poems soon God bless... Always, Annalise

    Quiet an inventive way to describe the down falls of sin, oh but it can be quiet pleasurable at times, like that wicked rich chocolate that keeps calling you from the hidden spot in the cupboard, "Come and get me Hollywood!" lol xxx Thanks for your visit,
