The Scariest Foes

The Scariest Foes
February 5
Proverbs 5:3-4

For the lips of an adulteress drip honey and smoother than oil is her speech;
but in the end she is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two edged sword.

I’ve seen terrible sights that stir great fear
I tremble when such foes draw near
there are enemies that define afraid
sinister silhouettes outlined in the shade

Movies are good at depicting such enemies
villains that bring heroes to their knees
books conjure images that imaginations find
plaguing at night in the back of my mind
but the scariest foes in life page or screen
are those which give pleasure when seen
damsels that put me in distress
on the inside they curse though outside bless
nothing is worse than the opposite sex
bent on bringing about destructive effects
the adulteress invites a presence to be adored
but she is sharper than any two edged sword
