Careful, Careful- A Womans Mantra

Careful, careful what you say
If you’re not, he’ll go away

Careful, careful what you write
If you’re not, he’ll get a fright

Careful, careful how you walk
If you’re not, he’ll start to stalk

Careful, careful how you dress
If you’re not, he’ll be a mess

Careful, careful how you spin
If you’re not, he’ll fall in sin

Careful, careful how you moan
If you’re not, he’ll make you groan

Careful, careful how you speak
If you’re not, he’ll make you weak

Careful, careful how you flirt
If you’re not, he’ll say you’re dirt

Careful, careful don’t give all
If you do, he’ll make you fall.

    oh my gosh, you have said in a fun way what a lot of women come to learn in life. No matter what you do, there is bound to be some guy who is displeased by it!! I sure enjoyed this one.

    Careful is not you. All your wonderful spirit flows freely from your insatiable pen.

    I am insatiable at that, Richard. It's so good when you have people who know you well enough to take your impulsiveness in their stride. :) Thanks for your visit. Always a pleasure!!!

    This is most unhealthy! Like Richard said below me I really can't imagine you being "careful"... it sounds more like Eileen's evil twin (or would it be good twin?)... KIDDING! Excellent work!

    I prefer the uncareful woman myself. Why should women be careful. Is that just to please a dominant man? Can't see you adhereing to your own words for a minute here Eileen lol. Take care, Richard

    I can be very submissive when I need to be, Richard. I'm a good girl! I serve my husband and do what I'm told! ;) Sometimes with some grumbling....Yes, I AM learning to be more careful. I'm usually quite impulsive and say what's in my heart before I've had a chance to put it through the filters of society. :( You live..you learn!

    Eileen... what a mantra!!!! Every man should read this carefully and memorize it to appreciate what women go through to please men.... And men who failed to appreciate a woman's strife are not illegible to be entitled as men. Loved this write so much!
