It's couplet time but I am shy one person short of a couple.
If I don't find a partner soon, I'm going to be in trouble.

I understand they call the term "set in their ways".
Or content to be on my own, oh happy days.

For too long now I've ruled my roost and jumped into my car.
Whenever the notion takes me to drive near or far.

Especially now the kids are grown and living far afield.
I can make an excuse to visit them and drop in for a meal.

Couples are nice to look at from a distance now I find.
I no longer wish I had a he who I was his and he was mine.

Dining out is so passe, I much prefer to eat at home.
Or even order take out, by simply lifting the phone.

My couple days are over, I'm a born again spinster now.
Roll on rockin' retirement, who needs a man anyhow?

In my teens, I spent five years in a convent as a boarder James. So innocent was I at 17, when a boy made me touch something hard in his jeans (I recoilded), then left me with a love bite on my neck, I asked my friend on return that night..."Could I be pregnant?" True story.

So now the truth comes out. Why have one man when you can have them all? Fun read Jean. I don't think you qualify as a spinster, you've already been married. Sorry! Lol

No Daniel, you have misunderstood. I end by saying I need none!! And to be "born again" in my mind means a clean slate. If Madonna can be like a virgin, why can't I be like a spinster??

Jan, who needs a man when I have friends like you to keep me on the right track? A man would never take the time. Thank you, as always for supportive and uplifting comments.
