The dainties rest on the counter
Ready to be ravished.
They call my name in harmony:
A melodic chant summoning me to Sin.
Resistance is futile.
The call is all encompassing
And soon my mind is devoured.
My heart shot with uncertainty
As my body stands still in shock.
An indecisive hand slowly,
Yet steadily,
Stretches itself towards those delights:
Heaven served up on a silver platter,
Tantalizing and tasty.
My tongue twitches with excitement
And my throats thirsts for satisfaction.
Pure pleasure awaits me.
Just grab it. Reach out and grab it.
Consequences? No such thing.
Really, none? Not a single one; but maybe.
But it's no big deal, Right?

The author's comments:
This actually comes from a funny quote from a kid in Latin class. I started off with the "ravishing dainties" concept, and just let it flow.

This is so funny to me and i dont know why but i love it. i dont even understand the darn thing. is it about taking something that aint yers? you know like the fruit tree? i love the 5th line, it sounds like youre resisting a conspiracy or something. i am loving the last line also. it would be conducive for you to do your dance at the time which is now.
