Riff On a Fellow Poet's Query: What's Wrong with Some Women?


In olden days you paid a fine
Confusing those who were not thine;
The shapely wife of your best friend
Has genetically a different end:
She merely wants to diversify,
And so she does it with a lie;
Unless of course she calls thee thou
And in doing so she breaks a vow.
