Fair Warning

Updated on December 13, 2011

Leave Comments and Feedback!

If you meet a boy, just keep walking.

If you don’t keep walking, don’t talk to him.

If you talk to him, don’t laugh at his jokes.

-If you laugh at his jokes, he’ll think you like him.-

(Boys are dumb that way.)

If you laugh at his jokes, don’t ask him out.

If he asks you out, do notsay yes.

If you say yes, don’t actually show up.

If you show up, don’t care about him.

If you care about him, don’t go out on another date.

If you go out on another date, don’t let that lead to more.

If another date leads to even more, don’t fall in Love.

If you fall in Love, don’t marry him.

If you marry him, don’t let your marriage fail.

And when you meet a boy, laugh at his jokes, go on a date

-then another…then another…-

When you marry him and your marriage fails,

When he trades you in for his twenty something year old secretary

And you’re left all alone

-When that happens-

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

      Lol the points you've made are exactly my points. The poem is meant to poke fun at the people who say I told you so to others about relationships.. People can't help who they love. Saying I told you so only fuels the fire.

      Kinda bossy...don't this, don't that...didn't anyone ever tell you? The best way to get somebody to do something is to tell 'em not to do it.

      Which is no doubt the principle I was following (do whatever you're told not to do) when I divorced my first six wives before ending up these past 15 years (and counting) with Pam.

      I did manage to snag a twenty-something secretary, too, for wife #2. She wasn't my secretary at the time, though. We met through astrology.

      Just saying.

      There's an essence in your writing I couldn't help but like.

      Voted Up and (you probably won't appreciate this, but) funny. :)
