Eros Error I II & III
Eros Error I
Glen, my colleague at work
Asked me 'What in the world
were you busy writing during lunch break? '
I told him I was writing a 'poem'
But he misheard and thought I said 'porn'
An incredulous look upon his face
He asked again (same mistake)
For the second time I said 'poem'
For the second time he heard 'porn'
Glen (of course) had to tell the others
Like Phil and Keisha who both looked so bewildered
Keisha had a mysterious smile
And with a twinkle in her eye
Begged me please to show her what I write
But stupid me just didn't know why
When Phil said I looked much too shy
And could not believe I had a wild side
That's when I finally realized
'Poem' and 'Porn' do sound alike
And swore I will be more careful next time!
Eros Error II
Does Poem rhyme with Porn
I guess it does
When Poem sounds like Porn
It creates a fuss
When Poem is heard as Porn
It creates a buzz
I said Poem
He heard Porn
He calls me Ms. Poem
and then laughs
It was a mis-poem
I say: Enough!
Eros Error III (Post-Script)
Now that's not the end of the story
There's one more thing they didn't know about me
Although I don't write porn
I could write erotic poems
Erotic as erotic can be
