    Somebody please tell me
    What makes a woman think
    That she can catch a man
    With a mischievous smile and a teasing wink
    With pretty words loaded with hidden and double meaning
    By useless posturing and vain preening?

    Sadly, I've known a few who fit this saccharine description
    And, I've tried to convince them to change this ineffective prescription
    But they remain steadfast, thinking they've got just the right 1-2 combination
    To knock out, bowl over, and gain submission to their domination....

    She'll think she's so slick
    Like she can have her pick
    Of any man she should so choose
    But, eventually, her sly games only make her lose
    And then wonder where she went wrong
    Like a QB throwing short when he should've gone long
    She'll think she's gaining & maintaining yards w/each executed play
    As if she'll win in the end by being fake, fickle, and fey.

    She'll coyly play so hard to get
    Thinking his whistle she'll wet
    Hoping to snare him in her "I'll get him yet" net
    By using the thrust & parry of feminine wile
    Never imagining he'd see thru her affectations and guile
    She'll push with one hand and pull with the next
    Her weak, childish taunts are an open text

    And when he grows tired of the same ole song and dance
    He'll decide the time to exit w/o a backward glance
    So, when the hourglass runs empty, trickling out of sand
    She's left so bewildered never realizing: SHE OVER-PLAYED HER HAND.

    Perhaps some can reel a man in for a quick hello that way, but not for a sustaining relationship. Speak on it poetess.

    well...now.

    A beautiful woman…unlike a man
    Who knows her power…knows she has the upper hand

    A smile. A strut. A wink of an eye
    Can have most men…and doesn’t have to try

    She strolls over with a smile
    Instead of pen and pad
    Wink at the younger ones
    The ones who’re only lads
    Coz she wants attention…in that tight, mini-skirt
    And those lines she be using…they work
    …coz she’s a flirt

    I’ve met such women
    With their outrageous and voracious needs
    Boosting up their claim to fame
    By pushing out their double D’s
    A generous smile calling my name
    With tons of flesh doing the same
    And all the while…getting her way
    Young men drooling. Old men wanting to play

    Coz...hey

    Men will be men…everyday.
