LOVE LOOKS

IRRESISTIBLE FORCES

There ought to be a law
against beautiful women….
but let no man charge that

  • in time – there is.

DREAM LOVER

I came.
I saw.
We concurred.

FLIRTING WITH DANGER

Would ya marry
Mata Hari?

OGDEN NASH SINGS COLE PORTER

What is this thing
Called love of light verse?
This thing that rhymes
For better or worse.

Just who can solve
Its hold on select minds?
Why must poets slave
O’er sound/effect binds?

They rack their brains
To make clever rhymes
Though it no long-
er goes with the times.

And so I ask the Lord
Ere I sight the hearse
What is this thing
Called love of light verse?

ASSUMED NAMES

Desire, but call it love.
Guess, but call it faith.
Pray, push cometh to shove,
Who knows flesh from wraith?
