Poetry Jam Temptation

The prompt at Poetry Jam this week is 'Temptation'

   Temptation 

Can I tempt you to try one?
I’ll persuade you, I know -
Tantalising and such fun 
To let yourself go. 

Seductive, inviting, 
Just one little goody 
Makes exciting biting
For a fasting foody. 

Can I attempt to exempt you, 
Pre-empt your objection 
To tasting a small piece
Of chocolate confection?

No? All the more for me, then!

  4. You do make it very tempting and extremely hard to resist. I love this little poetry tease.

    But now I have a desire for chocolate, fortunately none in the house.

    Completely enjoyable!

  12. I've been on a bit of a junk food kick, but only for a taste. I love sampling. (Today, I brought a box of Twinkies into work to share, thus I got a taste but didn't over indulge.)
