Too late for a date

Too late for a date

A Poem by Fran Marie
"

after all he's just a man!

"

 

Mud packs and curlers?
I think we're passed those days.
Nips and tucks and hair salons
Seem to be the craze.

 

Shaving is out and waxing's in
Hairy legs never see the razor's edge.
A smoother satin touch for our skin
'Tis the New Age Women's pledge.

 

Thinking you had time to spare,
you dawdled with the TV remote
I've been ready for an hour and a half
BABY! You done missed the boat.

 

Now that drab dab of cheap cologne
just doesn't do the trick,
Ewwie Poo Poo Poppa
It's stinky and makes me sick!

 

Besides McDonalds just wont cut it
with your paltry $10 dollars to kill
Add a couple Zeros
and it still won't fill the bill.

 

Now Men's sophomoric views of women
you guys will never understand
We like to be pampered properly
taken to high class places to wine and dine

by dashing dandy dapper men!

 

So as for us women,
with a high-toned livin' style
it should be quite obvious,
and make perfect sense


To make it worth your while
understand, we women are
High Maintenance!

Ha ha, nice try. Clever rhyme scheme but a little too superficial and materialistic for me. My fiance and I get along quite well without spending $1,000 every weekend on fancy dinners and jewelry.
