A Single's Net

A single’s net is cast
A single climbs the mast
To view a sea of profiles
Catching eyes, some color-blind

Some emails are soon returned
Some senders have not yet learned
Most personals are not for wiles
Or just adult friends to grind

A match searched for past 'leven
A perfect match wished for from heaven
No more games on survivals’ isles
No more drama is undersigned

Updating ads for smaller ponds
If no pic, then no response
If no interest, then no dials
Old tires put lines in a bind

Pulling to shore some more flirts
Pulling to shore some more skirts
Sorting through a crowd of smiles
Where faces can read the mind

Which one is honest and true?
Which one is the real yahoo
Who's willing to travel for miles?
Who fits the ideals outlined?

Wanting more than clever screen names
Wanting more than tramps or lames
There’s a need for someone who reconciles
Both worlds of man and womankind

Where chemistry can be sparked again
Where harmony can be marked again
Not on the notches of belts or stiles
But where two lives are intertwined

Not on shipwrecked beaches with felons
Not with fruitcakes, bananas or melons
This is for the sliced and diced files
Of those who cut straight to the rind

To reveal the heart and mind so deep
To reveal the soul in a body asleep
With messages and calls in piles
On silent, cold sands, sometimes maligned

Compatibility is hard gained
Compatibility should not be bargained
There is someone over lands, seas or Niles
For everyone who wants to be redefined

Cast a new net and take a chance
Cast a better net for love and romance
With personality, character and styles
Catching eyes of beauty and joy combined
