Death trap

Beware of the deathtrap
Right in front of you;
It’s staring at you
Eyeball to eyeball
The sweets that taste
So sweet;
May not be the best thing
For you;
Beware of what catches
Your eyes;
It may be the opposite
Of what it looks;
Beware of what tastes
Delicious;
To your system, it may be
A danger;
Super harmful to you;
It’s not because it’s
Delicious in your mouth,
That you should take it in;
Some poison has a flavour
Irrisistible;
But a straight way to doom;
If it ever happens that
You consume it;
It may finish you before you blink;
A source of death
Despite its sweetness,
Is the guile of the devil;
The lips of another’s wife
May taste sweet like nectar,
Or the lips of
Another’s husband,
But lead you straight to
Death;
If you know how enticing
Temptation is,
But that is the reason
Many fall into it headlong;
Sweet is like smooth
And kills like death;
Tasteful is the slippery road
That fastest kills;
You must be careful
When you ride on it;
So too
With the shiny things
Of life;
Although they glitter,
Danger lurks inside;
The thing that carries
Your heart away,
And make you think you
Cannot do without;
Is the thing that
Will floor you,
If you give in to it;
We call that a death trap.
Beware of death traps!
So many surround you,
With their wide open mouths,
They’re ready to gulp you.
