Bombshell! ! - Poem by Damian Murphy

My eyes they almost popped,
my jaw nearly hit the floor,
My tongue came out and flopped
as she walked through the door.
A body like I have never seen
in all my life before,
Now where could she have been?
no man could ask for more!
The whole room fell silent
but I could hear my heart thumping,
It was sheer excitement!
how fast my blood was pumping!
I turned ten shades of red
and could not catch my breath,
I thought I would soon be dead;
embarrassed to death!

I could not remove my eyes
no matter how I tried,
Then she was surrounded by boys
and I almost cried.
But then she just broke free
and slowly walked away,
Oh God she was coming towards me,
What was I going to say?
I prayed to God to be taken,
to be stricken down somehow,
My whole body started shaking,
and sweat ran down my brow.
I tried to speak but mumbled,
I totally lost control,
My thoughts became all jumbled,
I could not think straight at all.

But I must have said something witty,
something must have come out,
and as she laughed I thought what a pity,
she had not got a tooth in her mouth!

So do not judge a book by the cover,
look before you pounce,
For like me you may discover;
it’s what’s on the inside that counts! !

    An old Irishman once told me, many years ago, never to judge a book by it's cover nor a lady by the clothes she wears. You're damn right Damian when you say it's what's on the inside that counts. Beauty, after all, is only skin deep. Another well written, humourous, poem. Congrats. Was this the lady you married by the way. Ha ha. (Report) Reply
