Deal Breaker

An online date inquired,
Via text, of my good friend,
If she indulged in what’s become
An up-and-coming trend.

He had to know, he claimed,
‘Cause her retort could break the deal,
If she had shaved “down there,” 
Which would diminish her appeal.

To say this question threw her
Is to minimize the truth,
For how could someone better prove
That he is so uncouth?

My friend has crossed him off her list
For how he did behave,
Preventing what might have become
An awfully close shave!

    Your hilarious! What a cad! He must be mad. What made him think he could act so bad. Sad! Peace. :)
