after all, he's just a man

She was a natural disaster
probably the worst he’d faced.
Touched by her disclosure,
all of his brains displaced.

They started with fire and brimstone
but ended with a thud,
she was a natural disaster
he was, she said, “A dud.”

Well what did she know about life?
He’d been there, done that, before
but she was a natural disaster,
sent to even the score.

Now he’s a wiser man
resigned, he is, to fate.
She was a natural disaster,
destiny’s dial-up date.

Hard lessons a fella must learn
to make it in this world.
The hardest of all to survive
are administered by those girls!

After all, he’s just a man,
he will not be disgraced,
if he succumbs to disastrous charms 
with all of his brains displaced.

Why do men succumb to such 'natural disasters'? Thought provoking write, John:) You should read Proverbs again and again, but then, sad to say, Solomon himself fell:(

Good description of how experiences in mindlessness eventually lead to hard- earned wisdom--a 7! Janice

John: I'm sure this is a rare incident you describe here and not the revelation of human kind. :o) I enjoyed this a great deal. It took me back to my younger days. Keep them coming. oldbuck

Hi John, I liked the repeated use of the phrase "She was a natural disaster " it gave this well written more depth. Great write:-) Alexis
