COOL b. Malin


I met "Jack" at the Pool today...

I thought he was Pretty Cool,

With his Jet Black Hair,

And his Eyes of Baby Blue.

It was a Beautiful Sunny Day,

At the Pool today.

He swam over to me and said,

"Hi, I'm Jack"...What's your Name"?

I found myself smiling, As I said my name.

I'll play along...I'll play his game.

"Want to swim to the Deep End"?

He said.

I said, "Well"...

As my Man, Lover Man,

Jumped into the pool.

I introduced one to the other...

As they surveyed one another,

And acted... Cordially.

Jack swam away as Lover Man,

leaned in closer to say...

"He's got a Crush on You Missy".

"Oh come now" I say, Blushing slightly,

As I looked Jack's way, to see him waving...

From the Deep End, of the Pool..."Wow" I say,

As Lover Man asks, "Should I worry...

After all, He is a Younger Man"...

Now Jack is back, with an older Man,

His "GrandPa"...

"How did I do"? he says looking straight at me.

"You did fine for someone who is Nine"...

I say...

And then two young girls jump into the Pool,

And Jack is gone...he's no fool...

As they giggle and laugh, as he asks them

Their names...

The poet takes from thread and begins to weave a tale

that keeps the sweet surprise, until she lifts the veil!

Very, very, clever b.
