But virtue’s safer as it has no tar

Virtue is a habit like cigars
Like cream cakes and like coffee strong and sweet
But virtue’s safer as it has no tar

One might not search for virtue in a bar
Nor look for virgins in a dark lone street
Virtue is a habit like cigars

One does not act with virtue for a dare
Instead we hide our virtue,we’re discreet
Say, virtue’s safer as it has no tar

 

I have got much virtue I can share
And I have suffered scruples when I speak
Virtue is a habit like cigars

Indeed I have much virtue.don’t know where!
I am obsessive lest some from me leaks
But virtue’s safer as it has no tar

I am mild and  yet I am no sheep
I admire the lamb that upward leaps
Virtue is a nuisance like catarrh
Let’s   be wicked ,oh,my Lord, we are!
