Sweetheart You're in for a Show

You aren’t worthy of the gum on his shoes sweetheart
You think you’re good enough to rip out his heart and walk?

Well honey I’ve got news for you
If that’s what you plan to put him through
Sweetheart you’re in for a show cause

I’d walk through fire to keep him safe
I’d cut you up and throw you away

You think you can just get away?
WELL you can get away now… 
So start walking

I’ve got to say you’ve got guts to run this prank
I must admit you’ve got some nerve you dirty little skank

If you think you can just get away, well baby you’ve thought wrong
Cause sweetie I’m not afraid to get you and HONEY it won’t be long

I’ll hunt you down you just wait and see
So I’d be careful if you were me

I’m not interested in your past life
I’m not much concerned about your strife

Sleep with one eye open little vulture
Cause I’m prepared to take you down dispite your culture

You say it’s wrong? Well I say It’s right
You think you can turn away well I say come on let’s fight

Now that you’ve shown your true colors 
I have this aching strong urge

To knock you off your throne
And maybe break a couple bones

But I know you’re master’s calling
The one below that’s red and crawling

Better luck next time unfaithful thief 
I think it’s best before this gets ugly you leave

I don’t wanna have to hurt you but I will If I must
Every glance from you to him to me I don’t trust

I see right through those cold eyes
The fake smiles disguise your lies

But honey I’m no fool
And I’m coming for you too

If you don’t leave while you still have the chance
You might end up in losing in this death dance

    It isn't so often one sees street jargon used so well in a poem, but you succeeded very well in doing that, Skyler, in this quite fascinating poem. Your use of rhyming couplets in this fine poem was a great technique and very effective. Carl

    SO WHAT have WE LEARNED THUS FAR?FIRSTLY WE DISCOVERED THAT YOU ARE AN ECLECTIC POET WHO PROBABLY STARTS a poem with ONE line & runs with it HINT-THERE ARE OTHER WORDS BESIDES STRIFE THAT RYME WITH LIFE I.E. WIFE-KNIIFE-FIFE-RHYFE-AND THERE IS but 1 ADJECTIVE IN THE ENTIRE ENGLISH LANGUAGE THAT SHOULD never be modified by an adverb-THe WORD is "UNIQUE- if u use "very" it is inherent in the word unique itself-i posted this cuz u don't get soupmail hope ya don'[t mind PHREEPOETREE ~free cee!~

GIRL-YOU GOT IT ON, NOW READ FEW OF ME BECAUSE YOU'RE IN SOME OF THE CREVICES PHREEPOETREE under JEFFRY COHAN

    Nice write. I think you are just telling it like it is, at least sometimes.
