Pleasure is sweet.
pleasure is fine,
but sometimes costs more than quarters and dimes.

Pleasure is joy.
pleasure is pain,
if you're willing to suffer, the pleasure in gain.

Pleasure is quality.
pleasure is free,
but, careful, pleasure can place death's hook in your teeth.

Pleasure for you
is not pleasure for me.
What's dust before my eyes may be your fantasy.

The bible says: "Every man is tempted when he is drawn away of his own lusts and enticed. And when lust is conceived, it bringeth forth sin, and sis when it is finished bringeth forth death. Good job, J.

I like the way this flows. Very good.

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
