Marriage - Poem by Michael Ardizzone
Men with knives can hurt themslves
As much as truth’s been soiled
Men tell truths with lies at heart
Their hearts will get them boiled.
Girls that love will die afraid
Of fools who loved the prices paid.
Men sell cars and guns and lives
As much as heaven lets one
But what if heaven’s gone to lunch?
Will death be less than certain?
Girls that tempt will tempt their fate
For fools who come, but come too late
What death awaits the clever man
Who with a woman forms a bond
That God himself would have approved
To tempt such death, to gall the strong
To fight honest and then be conned.
