Be attentive to my wisdom,

Incline your ear to understand;

Not to become as deaf and dumb,

About life and what would demand.


That you may keep a discretion,

And your lips will remain on guard;

The ways women use seduction,

Causing your life that could be marred.


For the lips that are forbidden,

From women dripping with honey;

Temptation that has been hidden,

And are just looking for money.


Her speech is smoother than oil,

But latter bitter as wormwood;

A two-edged sword that will toil,

Dominate you all that she could.


Her feet are going down to death,

Her steps take hold drags you to hell;

Nagging you with every breath,

Casts on you an enchanted spell.


She does not ponder of the path,

Wandering ways, she does not know;

By crossing her brings on her wrath,

Her true colors will start to show.


So, do not depart from my thought,

Far from her you must keep away;

Her temptations have to be fought,

So that you are not led astray.


Lest you will give up your honor,

Lust an adulterous addiction;

No longer being a fawner,

Because of lustful temptation.


Stranger take their fill of your wealth,

While you labor in their house;

Diseases damaging your health,

That will be infecting your spouse.


At the end of life, you will groan,

When flesh and body are consumed;

As last breath produces a moan,

And you will then become entombed.


If I did not heed to the voice,

And obeyed what my teachers taught;

I would have then made the wrong choice,

On the pathway I would have sought.
