THE SAME OLD SAME OLD.

THE SAME OLD SAME OLD.

 

A guy who sees heavenly bodies,

All the time, like drinking rum toddies…

Soon tires (eventually)

Of all he can see,

Instead of excitement, he gets “noddies”.

Growing up with a beautiful sister

I’m told, one easily resists her…

One sees her fly kites

Away from spotlights,

She might be at times a blister!

Ten years of working with women,

The same ones once sent the mind swimming….

Still look nice

But he rarely looks twice,

Has gotten used to the sights he’s been given.

DO I DARE??

DO I DARE??

 

In the midst of what has been,

Do I dare explain man’s ken?

That he is not

Always hot to trot,

But often cools down his yen?

In long-term situations,

Familiarity lessens stimulation…

After a while

He may still smile,

But it’s not as warm an orchestration.

That’s why many marrieds yearn change,

In their marital relation exchange…

The same thing grows old

And starts to feel cold,

Although willingly home on the range.

He never had sisters at home,

But at work the same women roam…

And over time

He is less inclined

To take any one of them home.

And even if he would, he cannot,

Unless he loses the job he’s got…

Feelings tend to fade

Since he wants to be paid,

He accepts the conditions of his lot!
