Keys To Popularity - Poem by Frank Davis, Sr.

If you would endear yourself
to others, tell men things
they've never heard; tell women
what they want to hear- and never
tell secrets to anyone
who tells you secrets.

    So now I know! I like the way you choose your titles and how they fit with your poems. You never repeat a word or use one unnecessarily. Your poetry is pithy, pointed, poignant, and best of all, funny (sardonic) ! (Report) Reply

    Ahhh! So that's why I've never been popular...damn....Is it too late to take my secrets back from all the women who heard from me what they wanted to hear when ever I was in an endearing mood HaH! ......Frank, I'm going to have to play copycat here by piggy-backing on Ray's comment and echoing his opine in spades! ~FjR~ (Report) Reply
