    faster
    ...greener pastures

    is that what older men are after
    …these days
    a freshly blossomed bush
    to sink into

    I'LL DO YOU GOOD, LADY
    COME OVER HERE, BABY

    is that the caption?

    is it any better than the ROSE
    you once had
    are you glad
    you left ROSE behind

    is she fine...

    like a champagne chardonnay
    do you like the things she say

    is she broken in, yet

    does she fit like a smooth glove
    ...a second skin
    the way ROSE did

    after the years it took to get things just right

    will you grow tired of this one
    like you did the other one

    YOU KNOW THE ONE

    does the drama
    surrounding her {attitudes}
    and {moods}
    make you dream the far-away blues

    is it charm
    and charisma
    that’s pulling you
    toward her SWAY

    or is it
    HER WAY OR THE HIGHWAY
    for you.

    WHAT DOES THAT INFER, you ask

    well, i'm not inferring anything
    i'm asking
    DOES SHE PULL THE DRAWSTRINGS
    ...got you dancing to her thing

    or

    do you still wear PANTS

    come on

    DON'T LIE.
