0009 Cole Porter Hits The Chatsites - Poem by Michael Shepherd

Frat boy,
bratboy,
innuendo chat-boy,
why do girlies fall for you?
You’re really too good to be true –
and it’s true - you’re just not you –

your humdrum face
lacks manly grace;
your ‘slender figure’
's much much bigger;

your cheatin’ heart
has played its part
so what d’you do? you go to
some mag, and steal a photo,

and say you want a ‘long-term’
-but boy, is that the wrong term—

for p’raps the joke’s on you –
she’s doin’ the same thing too!

*

but back you go –
you never know,
out there’s a she
for whom you’re He,
the one you’ll give your life for –
(the one you’d leave your wife for..)

*
oh you and I are cynics –
but we’ve tried all these gimmicks;
once bitten, and twice shy
they say – but one more try –
we love these crazy antic
s – they’re just so darn romantic!
