As practically any single man knows,
the sharpest thorns can be found on any rose.
It is the man who has to wine and dine.
Most of the time, he has to stand in line.
Most guys don’t consider this situation fine.
Like butterflies, the pretty women can float around.
Men with looks and money are where they are found.
A man’s high-flying airplane can be easily downed.
Careful, honeybees can have a sharp stinger.
A fickle lass can be a sorrow bringer.
Caveat emptor, or let the buyer beware.
Roses with sticky thorns are found everywhere.
