Will You Be My Baby Tonight? - Poem by David Keig

Will you be my baby tonight?
Or will you be my lover?
Will you whisper 'turn out the light'
Or will there be another
Less enticing way of saying
It's time to go to sleep
Will you close your eyes awake
So you can secrets keep.

Will you want me for yourself?
Or want yourself untouched?
Will you hear me crying soft
When this all gets too much?
Will you be my baby tonight?
Or will i be your chattel
Will you be my baby tonight?
Or shall we resume battle?

Will you admit of some sweet words
Or will nods and noise suffice
Were you ere my baby tonight
Just once and maybe twice
Will you be my baby tonight?
Or will you be my lover?
Will you be my baby tonight?
Or hide beneath the cover?

    Interesting, Mr Keig.......What do you mean by 'another' Is this a type of Male blackmail, ie if you are not my 'Baby' 'I will find another'. Looking forward to your reply......NAT NAT
