My unearthed secret

Is no longer harmless fun

It is a weapon

Resist

the temptation

of the forbidden fruit,

sweetest pleasures become bitter

through guilt.

Rasp tongue tends lax paw.

The innocence of the cat.

Dead mouse before him.

Wrestle your conscience

so that you can live guilt free,

who’s to know, just you.

There was no intent

To harm or mutilate you

I was in the wrong

 

With a paper sheet

My heavy-handed rescue

Tore off your front leg

 

I did save your life

For my wife hates spiders

She kills them on sight

I have a day off

Guilt is stopping me writing

Am I conditioned?

My artistic guilt

coloured my souls raw canvas

I bled with each stroke
