Any Man With Money Can Have One ....... [VERY SHORT; NOT personal (really): a romantic evening; humor]

The night was young, the wine was old,
inside was warm, outside was cold.
The dance was slow, and I was bold.
My heart beat fast. Her hair was gold.
My two hands...... were on her waist.
Her two eyes said...“make haste, make haste.'

If YOU envy me, then drop a load;
pick up a “babe” where dolls are sold.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

THIS is mostly from my imagination...really! 'load' refers to a good sum of money.....not that i would know how much. there is a good reason why 'babe' and 'dolls' share the same line. any questions? ?

    Sounds like you had a nice time of it to be sure. I'd rather not buy a doll though thanks. (Report) Reply
