    If you enjoyed “Man Tease”, Don’t let the length of this piece intimidate you…
    You’ll miss out on an Epic piece…My sister Triniti gone knock this outta the park…



    Angelicsage

    He’s a hoopty…
    A brother that can’t get his act together
    The Gremlin, Ford Pinto…
    Always on re-call type,
    Just can’t get right,
    lacks ambition and direction
    with no inclination to his own life
    clouds of smoke swirling…backfiring
    and stalling at every intersection
    No understanding of direction or
    Taking ownership for his actions
    …He’s a hoopty
    his mechanics are faulty
    He’s rusty and brakes down to often
    Unreliable, unstable, neurotic and trife
    …he has to be traded in
    faster than the speed of light…


    (Touch down at the dealership)
    Born to perform…
    He’s bold and confident and fearless
    All leather interior, heated seats
    Window shade in the rear…
    One touch power moonroof
    Opens right up….so I can see
    Through his eyes…straight
    To his soul…because he wants
    Me to know….
    ……..him

    (I’ll…take it in black.)
    With 20” chrome banks
    Advanced technology…
    and exhilarating performance
    with uncompromising attention
    To my details…
    He came with 24 hr roadside assistance
    He’s proactive, and he knows
    How to “listen”…
    The bronze sapele wood trim
    Is such a wonderful addition
    With a 227 horse powered
    3.0-litre V6 Engine…He’s Wanted

    Embraces my open highway
    With confidence, he handles my curves
    Quite well…
    His performance is innate
    Response - instinctive,
    with Dynamic Stability Agility
    He knows what “not” to do wrong
    Flowers at the job…chocolates on the pillow
    Elegant dinner on Fridays with tickets
    To the theatre…makes me breakfast
    In bed…and isn’t beneath fixing
    The kitchen sink…He makes love
    To me all day in the way he looks at me…

    He was an excellent purchase!
    With unparalleled style and
    Innovatively luxurious components
    He’s seductive / measures up to the best
    He’s my prize possession, Jaguar X-
    A confidential offer…Accepted
    I like my men…like I like my Cars…


    Triniti424

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    Yesssssssssssssssssssss
    Like my men, like my cars,

    Mister.Bucket-“piece-o-crap”-car
    Mister.Stop-and-go cause he cant get it too far
    If he can “get it” at all…
    Stop&go… Stop AND……go…. .Stop…. and…. go…
    Stop- and –
    *stall* -
    ………..*stall*-
    …………………*stall*-
    wait a minute-
    ………………….*stall*…
    and maybe…………………go…
    (Oh… no…)
    smoke in his past
    combustible engine fire in his future
    of the destructive kind
    cause life is not kind
    to those who lack the state of mind
    to be worth any QUALITY time
    his jumpstart needs a “jump”start
    brotha lacks heart to seek the TRUE values in life
    instead he prefers the security of strife
    living to be the clutter in the gutter
    FULL of noise but not much action
    FULL of cost but NO satisfaction
    In any direction but down…
    Down…
    ………..down…..
    ………………….down….
    Brotha has no stability
    no sensibility
    no accountability
    loud colored designs to cover faulty drive lines
    his attempts to be TOP OF THE LINE don’t even fool the blind
    what he lacks in security he makes up in time…
    Time spent trying over and over and over again
    To restore a car line with NO design
    No valuable structure
    Faulty infrastructure
    Blue book disaster
    Price –LESS pinto
    He “cant get it right”
    He lacks the materials to survive on the road
    Let alone, sustain his own load
    undependable…VERY replaceable…irresponsible…
    No-account
    No-good
    NO more


    *classic* gentleman
    His presence demands respect and attention
    His essence elicits utter devotion and dedication
    As eyes…
    …………all…
    ………………fall….
    ………………………to…
    ……………………………him
    watch the 22 ice rims as they spin and he flashes that grin…
    *sigh*
    The soul of a father, brother, lover, warrior…King
    Embodied in the ever glistening exterior of…HIM
    Interior refinished to a glow
    Old soul…body anew…
    As he fills my soul with his words of tenderness
    His touch of manlyness
    And yet…
    He has never touched me…yet
    His masculinity embraces my femininity
    And he…
    …………takes…
    …………………me…
    over my winding, curving roads…
    mountainous mounds become conquered grounds
    320 horse powered cid Holley carbureted v8
    he is showroom quality but that can all wait
    for he…
    sacrifices all in spite of himself
    so that his Love, his family, his people, his seed,
    may grow to be, ROYALTY such as he
    remembered throughout history
    Sight unseen, his sound is that of SUPREME DIVINITY
    Commanding the meek to seek
    the better brighter bestowments of LIFE
    and whispering his Love in breaths of shimmering starlight
    through open windows to his beloved wife
    he handles like a “dream” …come true
    his control astounds
    his mind so profound
    his “model” is unprecedented and a rarity
    he is the *classic* gentleman epitome
    and HE is the right one for me
    fed from a lineage of success…
    with the ability to impress
    the humility to remain and refrain
    and yet…STILL outshine the rest
    I am not satisfied…I am impressed
    his worth surpasses all by far…
    ahh yess I like my men, like my cars.
