Temptations

Sin is like one of my favorite poems.  I often wonder who is really remorseful…
What would our animal natures allow us to do if there were no punishments or judgments?
Would we still do what was proper and “right”? Or would we be remorseful and repentant?
Children are the realest humans to study  for human nature.  A child’s face can be smeared
with crumbs, you ask “Timmy, did you eat the chocolate cake?” and the answer is an immediate “No.”
But oh, he reveled and wallowed in its decadence.  He savored every nip and bite.  He enjoyed
the chocolate cake far better than you would have.  See the poem below is that delicious meal you
didn’t finish but saved for later.  You thought of it all day or night- how you would wake up
and eat it or top it off when you got home.  You open up the refrigerator and it’s gone.

The poem below is the apology every spouse, partner, friend,

room mate, child or family member never dared to say…


Yes I ate.  It was good.  And I’d do it, again.

This Is Just To Say

by William Carlos Williams
I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox



and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

  1. Not sure what the world would look like if some folks didn’t follow some form of moral code…but we get a sample of it around the world when dictators get their way and in the streets of every city where the rules are made up as you go along.

    • “Without order, there is chaos” But I don’t need rules or regulations to do what is right.
      Corruption is a learned behavior, I believe we are born without guile.

      Again, children naturally share and love and accept and are generally “remarkably candid”.
      They are us at our best.

      unconditionally loving and honest to a fault 😉
