    Why did she come here tonight?
    Why is she wearing that dress?
    Why does she keep staring at me?
    Like this is some type of test?
    Why am I pondering these thoughts?
    Of these interests I cannot confess?
    Why does the angel to my right say no,
    While the devil to my left says yes?

    Thinking of what I have at home
    Yet, seeing all of her charms
    Thinking of how good it could be
    Yet, seeing it cause such harm
    Accountability gives warning
    To my right, I can hear his alarm
    Yet, temptation keeps pulling
    To my left, keeps tugging my arm

    Her gaze stays consistent
    She even gives me a wink
    A voice to my left says, "Step to her
    Maybe by her a drink
    Convince her to get closer
    Follow your masculine instinct"
    But, then I here the voice to my right
    Reminding me to think

    "So much you've built to be destroyed
    With the little satisfaction gained
    So much of your very life at stake
    When you’ll barely know her name
    Will you gamble with your promise?
    Will you find it in yourself to refrain?
    Or will you be able to save your home?
    When it comes time to explain”

    To my left I hear, “Peep the smile,
    And the precious soft brown skin
    She’s promiscuous & tipsy,
    You can see it in her grin
    You know she’ll take your hand
    If you decide to extend
    If decide to take her home,
    You know she’ll let you in”

    Then in my right ear I reminded
    This is a game that’s hard to win
    Somehow skeletons like these
    Fall out of the closet in the end
    Creating frowns from the Lord,
    Because it will be a sin
    Creating divisions in your home
    That may be impossible to mend.”

    Hello arthur:

    Don't let that devil lead you astray
    Its not worth it for a few moments of play
    Listen to your angel so you can continue
    to have brighter days

    Lovely Flo....Much Luv

    When we truly consider the consequences, I'd like to think we usually make the right choices. Enjoyed this scribe.
