Hold That Thought

He said I was materialistic,
in truth, he couldn't buy a biscuit,
he asked me to dinner,
thought himself a winner,
but I opted for cheese and triscuits.

He didn't have an automobile,
thought he could hop in mine, behind the wheel,
Stop right there, Buddy Boy!
the rear plate reads 'Catie's toy'
your fantasies are clearly unreal.

I told him my shoulders aren't broad enough,
to carry a man, though I may sound tough,
He offered only himself,
sought commonwealth,
wanted his name on all my hard earned stuff.

Surely, I can do better than that,
I want a man not a broke polecat,
men don't date broke women
I don't date broke men, Amen!
they call me woman, not desperate doormat.

(Yeah, i know, for a limerick, it's just not funny, but I wanted to get comfortable with the form. and this issue has been apparent in my life these days. Men do not want a woman who has no car, no apartment, no furnishings, no job... so what gives them the right to think they can bring NOTHING into a relationship. Sorry guys, but just yourself, is NOT enough. Women need to prepare for a relationship...and so do you. yeah, and as far as this guy goes, I did tell him that 'himself' was not enough. He must have thought I was desperate just because I spend a lot of time alone. Nope, not me! HA! I hope I don't sound cold and hard hearted, but truth be told...finances are always a consideration when entering into a relationship. I have carried men in my day, and do you know what? They are heavy. I have nice things because I purchased nice things, no one did it for me...okay... I'll stop rambling....Hmmm....Finances, perhaps unspoken, but always considered...)

    Hi Catie! There are good men around, though many of them are accounted for. I agree with you; nobody should be that desperate so as to settle for anything. Intelligence is there to be made use of. Enjoyed your limericks...who said there is no humour?!! All the best. // paul

    Funny is one of the hardest writes to pen. I laughed! If he's broke in one area, wait until you see the rest. . Thanks for visiting, Catie!

    I don't usually like limericks. THIS? This I liked. I do also like humour in poems, but I usually like dark humour, or the humour that happens from natural occurrence/human situations which we all can identify with ... I like the emotional quality to this! :) Hey, go back to Chris' blog. I found something for YOU... go read. ;)

    I must disagree Catie...This limerick series IS funny as well as the footnote, particularly 'I have carried men in my day and do you know what? They are heavy' You tell um my friend!...

    I myself found this very entertaining Catie. I think it is important that a man has his relationship with money in order because it impacts all other aspects of his and potentially your life. I for one am glad that my wife and I don't fight over our finances.

    I disagree with your assessment about this not being funny. There are some very funny lines in this lim'rik string! "biscuits & triscuits" "offered himself, sought commonweath" "men don't date broke women, I don't date broke men, AMEN!" Catie, this is brilliant…and funny! Losses & Hassles, john

    Oh, I love how you aired your feelings in this one. Not having been in the dating world for EONS, I didn't know men had become so fussy these days. What a bunch of boogers!!! Sure enjoyed this read, Catie. My favorite was the one about Catie's toy!!

    I think you are right to KNOW what you want and make it clear that you won't settle. Good on ya, Catie. Hugs

    Serves him right. But where in the world are GOOD men? They haven't evolved to that state of higher beings like women as yet.:)...nice limericks. 7
