Beware the Fireman

Beware the Fireman

A Poem by Corset

My father always said hickeys
 are the way BOYS mark their territory 
just as dogs do with fire hydrants. 

He said 
that if I ever came home from a date or elsewhere
with a hickey on my neck he would put a boot in my butt
that was still attached to his size 10 foot.

*Not that big I'm thinking, I've known bigger 
but 
none more scarier when he was mad.

He promised
 he would kick me so hard it would leave a foot imprint
to match the one the dog left and that foolish boy 
better beware the fireman 
'cause he'd be getting his brand of hickey too 
even unto this day

I've never worn a hickey 
because I believe in promises.

Some parental advice is more easily retained than other versions. A size 10 anal implant does have that flavor of something to be reckoned with. Especially if a steel toe is involved.

I smiled here Corset. I had a friend who had a Dad like yours. My own Dad was more trusting. He gave me advice. One snippet was never to date a man who wears white shoes. They can't be trusted he said. I have never forgotten it :)

Gee
As a father( to a now 20 year old daughter) this made me chuckle. Like you my daughter has never tested whether or not my threats( always non threatening) would be idle :)

you are indeed!
This one brings back memories...I love the way you do that. My Mom told me that hickeys caused blood clots. I'm not sure if that's true, but I never tested her words. I love your poem and the photo!

Hi Angel! yeah I never tested if the bark was worse than the bite, don't mess with Dads
Wow. Several things I like about this, your poetry always leaves its mark Corset - makes me think deeply for a while...they are unsightly things to be adorned with but the ole boot treatment not so nice - you turn this around to such a wonderful finale! Stay well :)

Always welcome Corset :)
My modest mother, at the insistence of my overbearing father, would check my drawers for condoms. But in those days, going to the drug store to purchase condoms was the shame, ignominy and humillation of a lifetime. And a hickey was an admission of guilt is there ever was one.

i love this poem for two reasons and none of them good. 1. it is truthful and 21st century truth must be qualified in some way in order for the converse of it to also be true. and 2. We've all been there and no one wants to admit to sameness even if it's true....dana
