Honey trap

A Union racing off the chart

He had her love her soul her heart

Their bodies ached when forced apart

They met when very young


They took off on exotic flights

Saw sandy beaches, northern lights

All set to put the world to rights

With every song they sung


The argument was lightning fast

They both exhumed each other's past

The end was nigh the dye was cast

As hate rolled off the tongue


Her bitterness said phone a friend

She'll test him to the brutal end

No currency or trust to spend

Confused and highly strung


Her bra strapped shoulder caught his eye

A mini skirt that can't deny

Suspended stockings silky thigh

The honey trap was sprung

                  Brilliant tepo, and that format which I love. I'm sure it has a name. I'm still yet to use it myself
