Is it a desire of something wrong, something bad?
Is it a desire of something we shouldn’t have.
Why do we desire things we shouldn’t have?

Is what’s desirers’ here desirers’ there?
Do temptations change as time goes by?
Do societies norms evolve over time?
Does what’s bad or tempting changes as times goes by?
Humans needs and desires are constant, it’s civilization that
dictates what is “tempting” and “bad”.
