Sonnet: On Pornography

By Dr John Celes

Accursed are eyes that see the naked scenes
Of man, woman, child in erotic ways-
The sin of pornography isn’t in genes:
The mind perverted wastes its precious days!

For, God had made the body too, sacred,
And sanctified the sexual act of men;
And adultery can’t stain the nuptial bed,
And show the red-lit world of whore-women.

Accursed are souls whose pleasures come from acts-
Unnatural and beastly, inhuman;
Such devilish joys, God’s punishment attracts,
And ceases man to be a decent man!

Shun pornography that inflicts wounds great,
In hearts and minds of souls, one cannot treat.
