moral fibre stretches in the dark
That offers us a cloak in which to stray.
Temptation circles, dolphin turned to shark
As black and white merge into silver grey.
These shadows shine like treasures beckoning
But greys of in-between will only gleam
For tempting moments, then the reckoning:
When consequences shatter such a dream.
Beliefs are founded on a culture changed,
So many now pursue what once was wrong:
Priority for choice is rearranged
In shady corners when the light's too strong.
We weakly claim to satisfy a need,
Betraying with a self-indulgent greed.
