Forbidden fruits

Forbidden fruits

A Poem by Robert Rittel

Biblical metaphor of immoral pleasure,

fatal attraction beyond measure.

Possibilities so near and dear bestowed,

more lust for its not allowed.

The tree of knowledge in just,

the experience to know a must.

Temptation in moral worldly loss,

no guild from the heart giving a toss.

Making virtue out of their faults,

oceans and their pinches of salts.

The ideal and its means,

breaking goals are the scenes.

Sacrifice and its value,

willingness will tell you.

If one fails oneself indeed

others will fail your need.
