You Betrayed Me

I guess the joke’s on me,
Trusting that you were true,
Accepting all your stories,
Wasting my time with you.


Oh, you paint a sunny picture
Full of warm days and sun
Playing happily together
Outdoors, having fun.

I’ll bet that you laugh
At my sadness and chagrin -
Setting me up like that -
Your “sincerity” sucked me in.

Floozy, despite your contrary cries
You are just out to make a dime.
You probably even advertise
Where the sun don’t never shine.

You were so believable
In you I completely trusted.
You, lie? Inconceivable!
But now, my ‘friend’, you’re busted.

Seducing my attention
All gussied up to mislead
You thrive on my misconception
That you have what I need.

You are nasty, mean and bad.
You’ve really done me wrong.
I’m left feeling I’ve been had
By you, Weather.com.

A rhyme poem huh? Seems appropriate in this instance. I was delighted by the twist ending. Otherwise, this didn't seem like your style. Then it all made sense.

Saw this one coming; thought it was mother nature though. I planted poppies in the sun on Monday and today its raining buckets. The drops are the size of cheetos puffs.

I did NOT see this one coming. Good job! The saying in my state is -- If you don't like the weather, just wait a minute!

Yes, Mr. Turner, rhyme is great for humorous verse, is it not? Those short lines marching relentlessly along... :)

Ah, you know me too well, Ms. Behavior. ;)

Thank you, Little Kim!

They say that in my state, too, Truckstop Sally!

Thanks, Loveslove!
