We felt her presence as she stepped inside
Jasmine called attention as she came.
Silken garment rustled at her side
Catching light in brilliant flame.
Every eye transfixed attention gave
For her beauty caused such strong desire,
Who’d be first to issue welcome brave?
Wistful hearts joined cupid’s choir.
Each in turn resolved their luck to try
Competition eked the brave ones on,
No one moved with seconds passing by,
Move forward, or perchance she’s gone!
Thomas Wanton seized the moment fast
Strode to door his physique on display,
Winning smile on her this man did cast
Always his commencing play.
She’d outplayed some Thomas’s before
Swept him instant to her net.
So many men, she hadn’t kept a score
She’d take his money all that she could get.
And thus, it is forbidden pleasures are
So tempting that we feel their subtle pull.
When stepping hopefully through gate ajar
They seize us and destroy our strongest will.
