Temptations


Temptations
Like the woman I meet
Who says hello as we
Pass on the street
And I think
Act your age
Should know better
As this stage
But I surely think
I'll be dead
When a lovely woman
Doesn't turn my head

Temptations
The Brandy on the shelf
Of the supermarket
Stood there by itself
Special offer
Full of allure
I can almost taste
Sweet and pure
But memories of
Hangovers long past
Give me the strength
To abstain at last  

Temptations
At every stage
It doesn't get easier
With advancing age
But the man
Unlike the boy
Learns to pace
And enjoy
To take life steady
And to savour
At every stage
Life's rich full flavour
