To my ph friend Bri Edwards, the reluctant romantic,
He who trusts marriage as one should've trusted the Titanic.
He who feels that marriage is just smoke and mirrors,
for the idiots, the fatalists, and the self-deceivers.
Yet when it comes to saying the fatal words of 'I do, '
He did so, quite often... and so eloquently too.
He must've practiced the words quite a bit,
To be able to say them and not have a fit.
Oh, my ph friend Bri Edwards, you reluctant romantic,
Remember there were some survivors of the Titanic!

THANKS, Elena. and now, ...........a treat (perhaps) for YOU! Someone's Panties I've never found Romance was necessary to remove someone's panties, which iIve done in homes-palatial, and......in less opulent homes: shanties. I have never married a smoker, but I've spent lots of time viewing mirrors, sometimes ones on ceilings, helping me to view my luscious wives' rears. bri ;) [hmmm. shall i submit it? ] [maybe not]
something 'made me' come to look at one of your poems, and..........lo and behold! one about me can't be ALL bad, can it (be) ? let me read it. :) i just checked to see if this is in MyPoemList yet, but, heck, it is 'new', so how could it be, .....though it sounds awfully familiar! now it shall join the 44 of yours that ARE in MyPoemList. hey! how come they haven't made a movie about me? my latest matrimonial venture has withstood ten years! bri ;)
