Hoax (You're A Sham)

You're a Sham

Hoax


Your ways were not that subtle

You had me at a knee deep to ankle

You promised me a bundle

It brought nothing but trouble


You appeared out of nowhere

You promised to love me forever

You told me my troubles are over

My knight in shining armour is here


You were God sent for me

At those times I was so happy

I uttered a sigh, Finally

I’m gonna be free


Now I can sense a storm is brewing

An alligator is nearby lurking

Trying to get me, had me flunking

Oh, what a nightmare ‘twas in the offing


When I woke up, I realized you’re a hoax

Love for you is full of flukes

You had nothing but hawks

You wanted nothing but to put me in hooks


You were in a feeding frenzy

You put this damsel in distress to wary

The feelings could never allay

The castle crumbled and gone a nary…




P.S. This was based on a true story of the supposed online dating...The man promised heaven to the girl, by telling her that he would send precious gifts, so he told her he was sending a package...When the package was sent the courier told the girl that the package was confiscated. In order for it to be sent she would have to pay a huge amount of money. So the girl was prompted to research and found out that the express delivery was a sham and the address of the man...So this must be a lesson for women who looked for greener pasture not to trust easily.

People that deceive are evil, they prey upon the weak, the emotions, the distresses. From such we must learn, then rise above the clouds with joy, we escaped.

Hi raciniwa, I'm not sure how I missed this one but better late than never I suppose.

There is such an important message here,I don't trust easily amyway but some do and especially at a time when defences are a little vulnerable!!

A vote up here without a doubt.

Take care and have a wonderful day my dear friend.

No problem, raciniwa. You have a great day, too. Stay away from alligators.

That's so sad about that poor guy who was scammed. It's so horrible, it makes me cry.
