The sleaze

The Sleaze

Young man born with grace and charm
And looks to woo the dames
With glib, smooth tongue he cons them all
To him it’s just a game.
He rips so many hearts apart
And he brags about his life
Even though he has a wife
His lust still causes strife

And on, he goes, and on, and on
He can’t control himself
He thinks that all these one night stands
Contain a heap of wealth.
Divorce and marriage, same again
And there right at the end
That smoothy finds his world falls down
And he’s running out of friends.

For then his friends they trust him not
And the women learn his tricks
Then he grows bald, and dull, and old
A stale old cranky Git
As loneliness eats into him
He needs folk very much.
Our sleaze be paying all his dues
He’s caught in karma’s touch.

    Fantastic write, Peter....and though I don't personally believe in Karma....I do believe, as the Bible says...we reap what we sow...Same truth....we believe me, my dear.....just different sources! :) To each his own! These players will end up lonely and sad.....the way of life.

    Eileen, all the religions point to the same thing Karma and as you reap so you sow means the same. It's the law of cause and effect. I have most definitely seen it in my life...Thanks for your comments, they are surely appreciated
