George Michael liked girls – or-SO-WE-THOUGHT, Then, SUDDENLY, one-day – he-was-a-gay-sot!!

“YOU’RE SWELL!” a poem December 17, 2018 – Monday

We should be dead; we should be dead;
We should be dead, my Sleepy Head!
I’ve curs-Ed “God,” yes, once too often,
And-you’ve-threatened-to-jump – into-your-coffin!
We’ve GIVEN UP – at least a mill-i-i(o)n,
Times-or-more – so – lemme-fill-y’in:

Whatever the-state-of-affairs that’s-been,
We’re probably “dead,” so – with-a-grin,
I’m-pretty-sure- – we’re in Heaven or Hell,
(which-is- what-we-were-taught! when-we-THOUGHT-we-were-well!)
WHAT-WE-WERE-TAUGHT? When we thought life was “normal,”
And we went to The Prom, and-you-were-dressed – in-a “formal,”
GOWN!-with-a-flower – AND – also one for HIS lapel;
A-fragrantly-designed-boutonniere – and-a-kind-school-bell,
That would ring – and-you-would-sing! and school would start,
And we-went-to-class(es) – and, at lunch, we-had-a-tart,
And a little cup – of-ice-tea – and It-was-just-fine!
You used-to – exchange – a pretty Valentine,
With Madge – or Pete-y – or-Roy-or-Sam,
And, after school, we’d listen to “WHAM!”*
George Michael liked girls – or-SO-WE-THOUGHT,
Then, SUDDENLY, one-day – he-was-a-gay-sot!!
And FAIR-PLAY – and-a-GOOD-DAY – were-considered – (pause) quite-OK,
But NOW – Haven’t-all-these-things gone-away? (pause)
Or MAYBE-NOT – for-NOW-we’ve-a-reason-to-live!
And – even – THRIVE-&-SHARE-&-GIVE,
One-another – pretty kisses, “butterflies!” – and-a “peck!”
You show me your bosom1 – and-I’m-just-a-“wreck!!”
And-so-we-should-be-dead – PERHAPS – but-really-who-cares?
When YOU (My Love) a-sexy-thing-wears,
OR – when-you-take-IT-off – and show-me your ‘fairs!
We’re A COUPLE – OF WILD, – WILD-MARCH-HARES!
Yeah! We-may-NOT-be-spring-chickens, BUT THERE’S-A-SPRING-“in your step,”
And-a-song-in-our-Hearts – and-our-friend Johnny Depp,
Is a little bit older – and, perhaps, somewhat wiser,
But I’M REALLY NOT SURE, yet there still is a geyser,
Every-time-THAT-you-“shake-it,” and-every-time-that-you-COO,
Those-fa-m-i-liar-words: “I LOVE YOU TRUE!”
So-maybe-there’s-LOVE-AFTER-DEATH-with-a-new-life,
LOVE-WITH-a-YOU, a sexy, sweet wife!
Called: “Adventures-with-(my)-Sweetie!”
And-in-The-Morning-Light – I’M GREEDY,
To: have more of you;
To: PROCLAIM, “Yes! I DO!
Do – LOVE YOU FOREVER,
and I’ll leave you – NEVER,
Whether-Dead-or-Alive,
And this-here’s no jive:

THAT YOUR EYES LOOK “16” – – – WHEN I SEE THEM, I “STEAM!” – – – LIKE A HORNY PROM DATE – – – WHO IS COM-PELL-ED BY FATE – – – TO-FOLLOW-YOU-TO-HELL – – –
AND-MAKE-HEAVEN, (’cause) YOU’RE-SWELL! πŸ™‚ – Yup! SO pretty!
