Topic: Taste (07/15/10)

TITLE: Tell It To Eve

I once had a taste for the high life
So I borrowed my way to the top
I'd charge this and borrow that
Until finally it came to a Stop.

My taste for the high life was short and sweet
And now I'm back in the slums
My penthouse, of course, looks down and laughs
While I scrounge around looking for crumbs.

My taste-buds I blame for my downfall
They desired much more than I earned,
But I, like a fool, fulfilled every yen
And gave in to whatever they yearned.

One taste bud wanted a fancy car
While another longed for a boat,
And the taste bud that wanted the Paris trip
Couldn't go 'till we had a mink coat.

If only, if only...I had remembered Eve
And the way she had done us all in.
With her taste for that apple a long time ago
That brought down our world with her sin.

Well, I'll wrap this up with a cautionary note:
With a word of advice that I'll share...
God gives us hearing, smell & sight,
But with "touch" and "taste" - Be Aware!

Your title made me smile. You have a great warning wrapped up in this poem. I was thinking "prodigal son" for a bit at the beginning!

This poem should be posted next to every store sign that says we accept Visa. It's so easy to give in to what we want. The funny thing what we need is always here and although it cost Jesus plenty, He offers it to us for free.

Many of us, including myself, can relate to this poem. I liked the rythem of the rhyme. It moved together nicely.
