Proverbs

Have you ever had that situation? One minute you're lying asleep The next you're awake And in trouble deep. On the pillow next to you where There should be an empty space Lies a pretty, sleeping, very Feminine female face. You look for the door and, With a sense of doom Realize very quickly You're in a strange room, The last thing you remember Is being in a strange bar So where on earth are your mates And for that matter, where's your car. This may be very nice But all the same Who on earth is Miss What's her name. She could cry for help Or shout out rape, Now's the time For a strategic escape. A sleeping arm flings out And comes to rest And suddenly you're lying Naked breast to naked chest. It's warm and it's nice and you Think I might as well just stay Tonight is tonight and Tomorrow's just another day, Remembering the proverb, There’s no need to rush, ‘cos a bird in the hand Is worth two in the bush
