Yea And Nay
Men and women quite often may,
Mean the opposite when they say,
Those simple words yea or nay,
While in a courtship or in a fray.
To read the mind, there is no way.
Just to be polite, women may say
A feeble yea which in fact is a nay.
Before they say a definite yea or nay,
Of pros and cons they make a survey
Keeping their real intents held at bay.
When men ask their women out,
To a date, a stroll or a dine-out,
Often falter when they go about
Taking a yea or a nay sans doubt.
Losing the fun of the coveted hang out.
