~~~ Man-Up ~~~
~ Man-Up ~
Explicit depiction of lustrous lines,
Inflict these times with surfeit signs;
Campaigns of love, before you met
That readied new flesh, for wild soubrette.
Bespoked, bedazzled; your senses frazzled;
Coquettish broad, ignored;
She labours now, seeks suitor's vow,
To father her hidden hoard.
Pernicious moves, flow double-talk,
Bleak past, outlined by pavement chalk;
A shifting heart, seats corbie mind,
To reach for you, she's so inclined.
This desperate waltz, before the fall,
Too late, to bleat a sheepish call?
You fixed her time, now doing life,
Reluctantly, must make her wife;
So be a man, and take her hand,
Bestow on her, your wedding band.
