Forbidden Treasure

they told me never to go near it, I listened to them all along, and never went near it, nor looked at it sharp enough, a thought ocurred to me on a day, and I broke the heed , and went by far nearest to it, I found it exciting and good, the next day I was still nearer, and almost enjoyed it to the most, in days that came along, I grew so familiar with it, that I disliked others nearing it, now I told them "never"to go near it, and also knew why they had, told me so thus far.
