' And Never The Twain Shall Meet


I can't believe you're wearing that!
Your favorite holey shirt,
Your kneeless jeans and sandals
And you've got the guts to flirt!

So much for first impressions,
You'd scare them all away....
No normal gal in her right mind
Would give the time of day

To someone so despicable -
You haven't got a clue,
I guess it's just that Mars mystique
That draws the girls to you!

It's a good thing we were programmed
To look beneath the skin,
Or humanity would not survive
The predicament we're in;

If women came from Venus
And all men came from Mars......
No wonder we bear children
While men race 'round in cars!

Perhaps the great 'all knowing'
Had no idea then
How different the wiring
'Tween females and the men;

And so we do the best we can
With the gender that we've got........
Venus stays cool and misty
While Mars flames red and hot!

And still we learn to co-exist,
Appreciate each other......
But who taught you to dress like that? ? ? ?
Certainly not your mother!

    Great poem with a great theme. Here it is four years later and that 'holey' still brings a smile because sure enough the holes are still showing. Read mine - Brier Fever -

    Opposite sexes like the positive and negative ions attract each other is quite natural and that is why cool and hot have to embrace each other to neutralize for better union in life! Nice to read! (Report) Reply

    Get a load o' Donna Keran would ya, now! LOL! I like this, Midnight, and the jeans & sandals, i'll agree to change...but a good Roman Catholic never tosses a Hol(e) y shirt! I knew this would happen when you renewed your subscription to VOGUE!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
