Propositioned on Poetry soup

Propositioned on Poetry soup

When I logged on the Poetry soup
Last night, I was amazed
A girl there asked me to be hers
Oh, I was more than phased
Because my wife, she reads these things
And she was not amused
I tried to make her understand
But to listen, she refused

Now I’m a man of seventy one
My lustful days are gone
I’m growing old and gracefully
I don’t want that carry on
Trying to ruin my harmony
I’m here to write my songs
And this be all I want to do
This woman got me wrong.

But anyhow, my wife she wrote
To the guys who run this show
She told me in an angry way
That these guys, they should know
They wrote her back with no delay
Said the comment, it was spam
I’m glad they blocked this silly cow
Cause she’s not worth a damn.

    Send future propositions my way, lol. Just kidding, kind of. I was checking out this form while I was also checking out the Ballade, I think these forms are more complicated than I really thought. I think I have this silly thinking that every form a don't know = free verse or rhyme. Maybe I should broaden my horizons again. I am planning on trying some new forms, maybe one of these. Good work.

    Thank you, my friend, I think it is better to just let flow in ones own most comfortable style. after all, it is the words that are important. I am quite the dinosaur myself. I appreciate your comments, my friend....peter

    Thank you Donna. I used to be on a number of poetry groups years ago, but I left them because they had become merely dating sites, which made them cheap in my eyes. I appreciate your comments, my friend....peter

    Enjoyed your tough response on that canned spam. I think I received the same invite, and it was good for a laugh, at best.
