Quarterly Adultery Industry Accountancy

The price of admission is everyone knows.
The price of kept secrets is not to be tried.
The price of forgiveness is risking your neck -
We both hung our heads rakishly to one side
since we risked broken hearts to possess broken
vows. And which of us promised the world, anyhow?
To have, and to hold up to scrutiny too. Well you can't
eat your heart out and have your cake, boo.

If we want to talk about unforgivable transgressions, how about I just "rhymed" "too" with itself in consecutive lines?

That's an earsore to the eyes, man. Well, what's done is over now.

I'm going to see if I can switch one of them to..."true" or something. Difficult job.
