If truth be known, he admires

Certain women without trip wires…

But then danger is greater

If he causes a crater,

By a comment that stokes up her fires!

It is not just the red hair,

But the kind of lass underneath there…

Too easy to old

Or rejectingly cold,

Those stereotypes are not fair.

One problem with this, you’d agree,

If someone tries to collect me…

Turn about is fair play

In a manipulative way,

If an object is all she or I will be!!

    Hi Johnathan! I wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog and sharing my post with your audience. As a new blogger, it is encouraging to know that my words hold an interest for readers outside my current circle of friends 🙂 Also, I really enjoyed reading this poem. I feel like it speaks to some of the future topics I plan on discussing in my blog – though much more eloquently – and with your permission, I would love to feature it in one of my posts! I look forward to reading more of your work 🙂 – Michelle
