Be careful what you say,

To a quick-witted woman today…

One may be safer,

Avoiding the chaser

If a comment of yours gets away.

I’m not saying that this is bad,

If a woman’s too smart to be “had”…

Just makes life a challenge

If sudden imbalance

Causes you to run on, a tad…!

You suddenly know you are pegged,

When pulling is abruptly legged…

Her comment about age

Sure stopped me mid-stage,

Any more and mercy I’d have begged!

–Jonathan Caswell
