ENTICED

...It is calm...
“Come!”  They said...it is calm
“Come!” they enticed...do not be afraid or alarmed
“Please come” they insisted...you will not be harmed
“Why there and not here?”...I wondered
In response I faintly muttered...
“It is secure and safe here”
“Hey, come you will not be harmed”...they reassured
“Okay!” ...in innocence I conceded
For they said,  “it is calm”
“Here I am”...I announced...”I have come!”
My ears heard them say soothing words
“You are welcome!”
“Alas! Alas”!...gasped I in is suprise
For sooner than later a tempest arose
“Did they not say it is calm?”...I whispered
I realized...“Conceding without considering was my fault”
For it was better there than here
