The Itch

The itch itches,

a thousand little mind-witches,

chafing and thirsting,

bursting,

craving,

pacing the paving,

longing to scratch,

to match

inner to outer.

A mouse in the house.

A louse.

A hundred mice,

a thousand lice.

Fickle peace,

tickle ruined,

the goad

to take the road,

tiny, mini, gremlinny nibbling,

quibbling.

The trouble with temptation

is that it's so

tempting.

If in doubt...
The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it.

Oh I just make things easy for myself and succumb, seems to me that all the good things are labelled with 'temptation.'

Specially the best choccies :o)
