A lesson for the Old Dog

A lesson for the Old Dog

A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

well, dude, that's what you get when you hit on me at my parent's table.

"
Dear Sir,

How can I make it clearer?
Take a good look in the mirror.
I 'm not exactly the type
To giggle and swoon,
For a man who's way past ripe,
And a little out of tune.
You and your big fat wallet
Are not what wets my palate.

I'm not overly impressed
By your tacky leather vest,
I understand your hunger
Baby, let's be realistic,
To pursue someone younger ...
Why teach old dogs a new trick,
When you can get a new pup,
Who can always keep (it) up!

The play on palate was entirely intentional. Thanks for the review.
This is pretty much what I'm thinking as our lurid political sex scandals keep trickling out about Trump . . . who the hell!?!??! Billions or not! Are they really throwing themselves at your hubby, Melania? I'm afraid I'm starting to see every message thru this warped lens! Only two more weeks & we'll know if the world implodes.

Anyhow, I love the rhyming in your poem, as well as the snarky attitude, which is so nicely crafted. I wonder if in the first line, you might have meant: "How can I" instead of "How I can"? Also for the last line of first stanza: "whet" instead of "wet." Despite these two minor bumps, everything is brilliantly observed & described! *smile* (((HUGS)))

I saw your response to Paloma about "whet" vs "wet" after I mentioned it . . .

I am surprised - you are usually quick to catch a double entendre!:) hugs
Entertaining read but I can only imagine not to experience.

I think you meant 'whet'.

Thanks for the laugh, and the review. I most definitely meant wet -- just a little play on words Bri.. read more

Ahh, devilishly clever of you. :)
Oh, Come on! Give the old guy a thrill! Haha! Very nicely done, KLG! For a heartbeat, I thought you probably should have used the word 'whets' my appetite, then I thought better of it and realized it was ingeniously placed. Very clever, my girl!

Having worked in the public sector, in other words, restaurants, this is not an unusual happening. Sadly, some feel they are able to get away with it.

Nice song choice.

I used to walk 3 to 4 miles every day, until I started getting propositions from men wanting to ask me all kinds of questions. This one older gentleman was willing to pay me if I went home with him to "clean his house" - yeah, like I was just born yesterday! It became so bothersome that I stopped and bought myself an X bike.

A girl just can't be too careful these days...men will be men, but I'd really like to believe that there are more good guys than bad!

Funny scenario, Kara...hard to believe he did it right in front of your parents!

Well kid, speaking as a seasoned old fart I couldn't agree with you more.

You go girl and hit him where it hurt, his pride. Yhose pretty boy charges can only hide the truth for so long.

Tell it like it is, GF! There are a couple reasons why young women are with men their daddy's age. Either they have daddy issues or they have a price tag around their waists. They do not care about enjoying the antics in the bedroom. They care about the jewelry, fancy dinners, and shows the man is taking them to. Sad really, but it takes all kinds. Lydi**

Thank you, I appreciate it.
C'mon, the big fat wallet is a start.
Then the viagra for when it doesn't work.
Otherwise, why are all they young girls going out with old farts.

I would have to say those kind of women don't like sex, so they don't mind selling it.
