His future's So Bright

He sports some eye shades plastered to his nose.
In coolest clothes; with cell phone goes to town.
Perpetual is his strategic pose.
His glasses don’t come off when sun comes down.

He scans a crowded room for someone hot
on which to use some cheesy pick-up line
and show the ladies what finesse he’s got.
Too bad he’s never heard of “wine and dine!”

And every measly buck spent on a dame
he sees as a down payment on her "assets".
Shallowness could be his middle name
since his character has so few facets.

He tells his bimbo prey his future’s bright,
but even she just sighs and says, “Yeah, right.”

    Reminds me of the song from the late 60's called the "Rapper" Do you remember it? This fellow sounds very shallow. But we are not all like that! Keep up with the good poetry! Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    Hiya Petal, I'll attest to Darren's statement on the use of the word plonker, you see them ten a penny in the pubs. Of course to romance a lady a man has to be as clever as they are, which is rare lol. Take care, Richard

    Poor guy, sad state. So true Andrea, we've all been there, but had the sense enough to leave. Always love your selection of words. Take care.

    Very entertaining, "He wears his sun glasses at night." it made me think of that old song. Also that old leisure suit Larry.

    I see guys like this in England too , We call them plonkers , lol Usually stand about with a bottle of beer in their hands thinking they are ten men , They arrive alone and tend to leave alone too . Brilliant poem Andrea.

    hi Andrea i like the personal touch in this one, if for a contest good luck, thank you for your comment I did think my poem had perfect rhyme and the meter was spot on, the swop was on the nail, but as I have already said I respect the judges decision in any contest....David

    You have captured quite a lot of my brethren, though some of us can't account for their actions, your last two lines cut rather deep

    Andrea I'll tell you what my granddaughter said to me about my poem "Jack" . It's not a big belly laugh but a nice quiet chuckle. Well done. Anne
