Mild Corruption

Mild corruption is what I propose

Sleeping in past 6:00 a.m.

 

Having a beer in the afternoon

A toke on the after dinner walk

 

Mild corruption

Like sex in the afternoon

Just because

 

Like a hand on your thigh

At the family restaurant

Other eyes focused on the fries

While I

Disturb you

 

I want to mildly corrupt you

 

Get you drunk on champagne

 

Keep you up past midnight

 

I want to run the red lights of your heart

 

I want to tag the underside of bridges

Armed with cans of spray paint

With you leading the charge

 

I want to go to Walmart with you and not buy anything

And tell the greeter that they didn’t have what we wanted

 

I want to mildly corrupt you

 

Make you feel almost like you’ve sinned

 

But not quite
