BEWARE! BEGUILING BAIT

Up and down in the tree
A monkey led a life so free
How could she be so glad?
From below, thought a hunter’s lad.

A jar full of groundnuts he found
And placed it on the ground
Leaving that place without any sound
Hid himself near a mound

“Groundnuts to my eyes are pleasing
They sure must be life nourishing
Perhaps can make me wise, no doubting”
Thus saying she slowly came descending.

Near the jar she did go
Let her hand in for a few nuts or so
When her hand got caught
Ways to escape she sought

Yet, unwilling to drop the food
She helf for they looked good
Finally fell to the hunter’s trap
Became a slave bearing his strap

Beware of the beguilin bait
Kept by Satan that’s on wait
Leave sin and chose Jesus now
Redeem time, days are evil, don’t you know?
Remember your Creator when you are young
Not when there’s a problem in your lung.
