Bar Talk - Poem by Terry Collett

You remember that dame
who didn't want to talk to
you and then later she did

by which time you had met
some other chick who really
turned you on? Joey said well

she's like that with most guys
she thinks it gives her a kind
of power you know the type

was probably kept under her
old man's thumb or maybe her
brothers kept her in her place

and she wants to break out or
in whatever the case may be
so I shouldn't take it to heart

Bud don't let it get to you
anyway if you see her again
give her the cold shoulder or

spin her some yarn that you
only go out with good looking
dames and Bud looked over at

Joey who was smoking a cigar
and holding a glass of beer and
said I know dames I was born

from one and I had four sisters
all of whom were nice chicks
and really made my youth one

hell of a heaven if that ain't a
contradiction so I don't need
no lessons on dames see I know

them and so Joey shrugged his
shoulders and sipped his beer
and drew heavy on his cigar

and said so be it next thing
you'll be telling me is you've
slept with your darn ma.
