Flesh Delight (Revised)

images

Virtue declaimed
Convention frowned
Religion constrained
Morality questioned
Reason connived
Senses rallied.

P.S I light a cigarette as a disciple of Zoroaster, worshiping sacred fire, and a student of Prometheus, who taught mortals how to kindle fire and use it for the benefit of Mankind. It’s a prerogative of a human being. Apes might simulate semblance of motion, but not the dexterity of manipulating fire and the delight of sensation. Deleterious -yes – but pleasurable and irresistible.
