Fresh Bait

I’ve used this bait for far too long
once fresh and sweet, now limp and dead
But on my lure alive instead
a lie to hide two bitter wrongs

My prey is dumb and gulps the pair
He vomits one but not the other
He tears his flesh avoiding capture
I already had new bait prepared

But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers (James 1:14-16).
