Bad News Girl - Poem by Yoni Assis

The girl was bad news
The kind that gives men the blues
The type that really turns the screws
Body of Aphrodite
Eyes of an ingénue

Boyfriend in the way
Of course I had to stay
Now totally smitten
Needed to play the villain

Sneaking around town
Oh, how much fun
Kissing in the park
Playing in the dark

Her guilty feelings surfaced
“Is all this lying worth this? ”
Beau sleeping at home
“Maybe I should call.”

Time was running out
How would it play out?
Aphrodite by my side?
A lonely airplane ride?

30,000 feet
Although I couldn’t sleep
Listening to Daryl’s soul
Couldn’t help but mull

Should have stayed away
Should have kept at bay
Plenty of other women
For me to have been fishin’

So take my advice
Don’t mess with another man’s prize
Another bus will come again
Just be patient and wait till then
