Want Ad Date - Poem by Sandra Finch

I answered a want ad to find my perrrrrft date,
But He wasn't what I expected and He was two hours late! ! ! ! ! ! !
His ad said he was rich and looked like a movie star,
I know he stretched the truth-Just a little bit too far! !

He had no hair and his teeth were gone,
He sure wasn't the man in my favorite love song.
He wasn't what I expected, not who I thought He'd be,
But, I went out with him anyway cause I just had to see....

But the wreck in my drive was his fancy sports car,
Instead of a nightclub we headed for his favorite bar.
We had watered down beer instead of fine wine,
And bar snacks aren't my idea of a romantic way to dine.

When He finally took me home, He tried for a kiss.
I ducked just in time, it was sure a near miss! ! !
This was the worst date ever, not two words were said,
I'd rather be alone at home, asleep in my bed.

    Never done an ad date, Sandra,
    Now I never will,
    The thought...no hair...no teeth
    Just makes me feel ill.

    Had a good laugh. Thanks.

    Love, Fran xx (putting in my false teeth and sticking a wig on my head...)
