TEMPTATION OF MAN, CIRCA 2015

How many times can a man resist?
I did, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5…

I flirted with Korea and Canada
A Finnish affair lasted slighted longer
But it never did work out
And for a while, my mobile nakedness
Was embarrassing for all to see
My Eve, long fallen
And my daughter, completely smitten
Chastised me and demanded
I hide behind a shiny new fig leaf

When Steve’s serpent enticed me again

Now I have bitten into the appetizing lure
Of a metallic silver object of desire
Which has taken a bite out of my wallet
And added a few more dollars to a 190 billion stash
With this forbidden fruit
In my constant company
I join the company of Adam, Newton and William Tell

I have succumbed to the charms
Of Cupertino’s Garden of Eden
So help me, God
