Temptation

Temptation is addictive
Draws you in enticingly
The carrot less the stick at play
Where will might fail to be

Resolving to be better
To not succumb; be strong
Less the allure; the gathering
The coax but things go wrong

And then it comes a-hankering
Appeal; forbidden bait
Temptation; irresistible
You can’t!  You just can’t wait!
