You Should Be Put In Your Place - Poem by Randy Johnson
You only date men who make seventy-five to a hundred grand a year.
Your greed has driven many a man to tears.
You're attractive and at first I thought you had charm.
You refused to date a man because he works on a farm.
When I asked you out, you laughed in my face.
It's about time that you're put in your place.
A man who drives a chevette asked you out and you told him to come back when he can afford a porsche.
Last year you married a man who was a CEO but when he lost his job, you got a divorce.
The corporation he worked for went bankrupt and you said goodbye.
I felt so sorry for him when I saw the pain in his eyes.
There's more to people than money but you only want men with cash.
If I had a whip in my hand, I'd give you a lash.
I know some men who are poor but they have other wonderful qualities.
It's too bad that that's something you can't see.
