A Man Of Many Fashions - Poem by suzan gumush

Comes a knock on my door
I open it......
Dressed inside a suit
He stands tall
A clean shaven face appears.....
No thank you not today
Shuts the front door
Comes a knock on my door
I open it.....
Wearing earrings
And a shaven head
Dressed in leather trousers....
No thank you not today
Comes a knock on my door
I open it.....
Comes dressed in jeans
A T shirt
Spelt with words
I'd rather not mention.....
No thank you not today
Comes a knock on my door
I open it.....
He stands naked
That's when I do fall
I'm too shocked for words!

    I am shocked as well. Suzan, shame on you. A well constructed writing. A
    wonderful tale. Great creativity. Sometimes, the simplest things make the best
    reads. Congratulations! A winner!

    Too often, poems take such a dark route...it is fun to just let the laugh out once in a while! Good One. (Report)Reply

    Love this poem. Read it over several times, It draws you to the end, knowing there is a 'punch line' coming. (Report)Reply

    Suzan,
    I can understand most any man falling for that fashion,
    Yet again... you have surprised me.
