LUST IS INDEED THAT TRICKSTER-LIKE! GOOD JOB!
Love is a jerk,
a cruel-hearted beast
with a gap-toothed grin
and a cigarette.
Tossing his arm around your shoulder-
the friendliest bloke on the block,
don’t you know-
he opens his jacket to get you to try things
that you’d never dare
if ol’ love were not there.
You follow him home for his company;
He locks you in his house
as he leaves.
