LOVE POETRY NOT FOR ME!

LOVE POETRY NOT FOR ME!

Love poetry’s not for me

And I’ll tell you why…

Because tend toward personal things’

A lot of my friends would die!

Rememb’ring times with a sweet young thing,

Is becoming harder to do…

‘Twas after college when romance got going,

An awful rough time to get through.

Only one or two (-?) I dare to ogle,

Beyond my wife I scan…

The favorite  wore a pantsuit

Some times don’t work out as planned.

I frankly shy away from love scenes,

Don’t want to think that way…

Longing for other than what I found

Will accept what WAS today!

What would I do but envision others,

More exciting in form…and bed…?

Better to not fantasize in sinning*

And burn out my wiring, be dead?
