A QUICK-WITTED WOMAN
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!
