A Guy Called Bloke has thrown down the gauntlet to write a story or a poem with a Valentine’s day theme. Click on the link to see his post:
Here is my poem:
I was desperate, I admit, it’s true
That’s why I agreed to meet with you,
It was Valentine’s day and not wishing to be unkind,
I wouldn’t normally choose to go on a date that’s blind.
Neither of us knew quite what to expect,
But you’re not my type, no disrespect.
You see, what I’m after, and no doubt so are you,
Is someone taller, good looking and twenty-two.
I suppose we’re both just too much the same,
two disappointed searchers, it’s such a shame.
It’s been a nice evening, not bad, alright
not absolutely a wasted night.
Sorry, what’s that you said? You’ll pay the check?
With your gold diner’s card? Just wait a sec.
Maybe, after all, this has been my fate?
Would you like to go on a second date?
