Songs of Hedonism
In the seduction of the sense
We have a series of pleasures
That introduces us to
A desire that is never quenched
So is it worth then to chase?
What fundamentally, shall
Never be caught, like dopamine on a leash
The variety that takes the soul
Off of its beloved course?
Celibacy is perhaps the sunlit path
For virtue and those who have read history
Nothing so tranquil as a good library
However, should you find secret love
Or a scandalous substitute
Remember, there is no sinner like a saint
Nothing so good for the health
As a touch, no learning like
The end of solitude, each moment
A happy lover’s hour, is worth
An age of dull and common life
Right down sensual love, is
A language all nations understand equally.
