    Now, it's been said that "The best offense is a good defense."
    And, I'll give you your 'props'.
    Your game plan was full of blocks and deceit and pretense
    But I let you have lotsa slack in your lead
    Just to see how far you'd go in each lie and betraying deed

    Now, as for execution, I'll give you a gold star!
    Cuz you were so proud!
    You thought that for "slick-tivity," you set the bar!
    You'd smile so brightly with flattery so smooth
    How could I not believe your truthfulness and your genuine sincerity?
    But you were blinded by your own conceit and your bold temerity.

    You never noticed that the gleam in my eye was gone
    Whenever you walked into a room
    Or that the falling of the other shoe yet did loom
    You thought you had my mind, body, and heart on lock-down!
    While you went out tom-cattin' all over town.

    But, now, I've moved on
    And, yes, I, once, was hurt
    But, I'm not bitter. I won't drag your name through the dirt
    'Cause I had a game plan too.
    I called in "The Bench" as soon as I was through....with...you!
    Cuz you fouled out.
    You turned ALL my trust into pain and doubt.

    So, you've been traded with no incentives nor options
    You invalidated your contract with all your "moon-lighting" adoptions.

    And, now, you're a free-agent to do as you please
    I'm pivoting away from you, 180 degrees.

    But, before I go, I wanted to let you know
    How obvious were the tracks of your SNEAKIN''
    Just
    in
    case
    you
    thought
    I
    was
    SLEEPIN'!

    Give some people an inch, they'll take a mile, and run with it. Good looking out for the home team. Yet another well posed piece poetess.

    Thank you, Rich, Watz, and So'ja!

    I did have fun writing that piece! LOL! I was remembering a situation from 22 years ago! My ex-boyfriend (the one I fired!) had been seeing me and my NEW boy-friend together. One day, the ex tried to step to my new man and my new man told him, "Man, I didn't take your woman. You gave her to me."

    He told me later that the LOOK on his face was a Kodak moment! ROFLMBO!

    He and I laugh about that to this day! We're still friends after all these years.

    Ahhh, memories! lol
