The Game.

The Game.

A Poem by Paul Bell

It’s only wrong if you get caught
It’s only right if you want it
You must obey all the rules
This is the greatest acting part in your life
Never upgrade your wardrobe
Change your scent
Use your own phone
Never mix the names up
On no account use your credit card for gifts
Always try for married women
Makes sense
Okay, I think you all know the rules now
So, off you go and have fun
But be careful out there.

My momma warned me there would be guys like this. Fortunately, I long past the age where I am fooled by Mr. Says All the Right Things and Pour it on Thick. Curious and engaging write:)

You sure you're long past that age, Pryde. You know it happens.

Hate it when you reach 25
Clever and perceptive.
Well done, Paul!

Only if you get caught.
Obeying all rules, the greatest acting part of your life ... 'acting' being key. Very clever! This has a totally unique style and voice.

You know they're all out there playing the role.
And an expensive game it can turn out to be; and not just financially either.

Beccy.

PS. So what's wrong with us single females then. :))

I laughed at this one and then read the reviews. Guess it's good your friends know and understand you. I liked what Dave Brown said about the 'shotgun' and 'guys like you'. That was funny.
Found this to be an adventurous read.

You need a good laugh in this mad world we live in.
But stick to the rules. lol
Haven't seen much of you at the cafe (I've been spotty, too) so it's nice to run across this in my reading list. This is a sparkling example of how unique your point of view can be. Your stories are never coming from some predictable POV. It's almost startling to see how your (in this case) sarcasm drips out gradually becoming a bigger & bigger blot of outrageousness. I always love it. I gotta go check to see if I've missed some current postings of yours (I'm forgetful . . . if I don't see a person for a bit, I forget they exist!) *wink! wink!* Fondly, Margie

Oh my, I have always loved heated encounters with those you shouldn't be seeking the most. Why does the wrong thing feel so very good? Great write!

The spice of life in technicolour, keeps us alive, or dead if you get caught.
Nice to read you again Paul and I especially love this somewhat sardonic and witty piece of counselling for those wishing to default upon monogamy. An unnatural state in any case, ask Darwin!

Darwin was a wise man. lol
the first line says it all..."it is only wrong if you get caught"
and many would say..."I am sorry" but only mean it in the sense of being sorry for being caught.
this almost tells us that the only way to really have fun...is to do what is taboo...
the excitement of doing what we should not do...living dangerously.
i like the fun ride here.

It's like a Lawyers charter to make money, when the inevitable happens.
