Temptation surrounds me like a fuzzy warm blanket.
Temptation calls to me to come out and play.
I pull my thoughts sharply in to order~
"None of that~concentrate on the task at hand."

Temptation wheedles and teases me, tricking me with soothing thoughts.
Temptation runs through my mind, like eye-candy for grown-ups.
I pull my thought sharply in to order~
"None of that~be strong and do not give in."

Temptation delivers a happy message and makes it hard to resist.
Temptation giggles at me as I beg it not to tempt me.
I pull my thoughts sharply in to order~
"None of that~you are a grown up and beyond all of that nonsense."

Temptation wraps its arms around me and I surrender happily.
