You told my (SISTER IN LAW) (WHAT!!). If you think for one moment I am remotely 
interested in that so called (LITTLE MONSTER) you call your (HORSE FROM MARS) (YOU WILL 
SEE) you won’t (GET FAR). Ever since your (DIVORCE) you’ve been hinting at having an 
(AFFAIR) with me. Listen (4 EYES), I am (FOREVER GONE) from your life. I don’t care if I am 
(ONLY IN A DREAM) in your mind, I want to be (LEFT ALONE)! You have to (BELIEVE IN ME) 
when I say, I will never be in another (PAINFUL LOVE AFFAIR) just walking around shedding 
a (TRAIL OF TEARS). I want to keep a (BEAUTIFUL SMILE) on my face. Your girlfriends 
usually wind up (BLACK AND BLUE) in (A LITTLE BIT OF TIME). (AM I) nuts! (AM I??). I know 
you aren’t (DEAF) so just change your (ONE DREAM TO ANOTHER) and get the hell out of my 
life, (IF YOU PLEASE)! This is (THE FINAL MESSAGE) on this subject!!!

    hahaha, this seems very IRMA-ISH even the poem itself derived from titles of her poems! The BAloney Pony, what a great title! I can see Irma loved hers and she even replied like I did! She is great too. LUv, Andrea

    Very clever, John. You managed to string all the titles together and come out with a biting satire. Nice job. Love, Carolyn
