COOL b. Malin

Updated on February 20, 2011


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...
