Look away

If you cannot gaze upon

Beauty

Without your fingers

Twitching

And your tongue flickering

Like the

Serpent you are

Then cover your eyes

.

Look away

If you cannot behold

Beauty

Without igniting

Destruction

Then you ought not to be

Permitted to walk the streets

Unchaperoned

Lest you succumb to your primitive

Desires

.

Perhaps we should pour molten gold into your

Eyes

Render you incapable of

Sin

To protect, you understand

Better blind that guilty

.

Perhaps we ought to bind your

Hands

Tight behind your back

Out of Harm's way,

To let your

Chaperone

Lead you around on a

Leash

Like the animal you are

.

If you cannot control your lust

Perhaps others should control it for you.
