Sometimes Hello is just Hello...just venting...

Miss Thang…

©2005 Tyrone Vincent Banks


Clothes that fit tight

Long hair just right

How did you grow 2 feet of hair overnight?


You hear me, right?

Now that’s not nice!

I’ve said good morning, not once but twice!


I’m just trying to be polite.

I’m not trying to get with you!  Alright!

It’s such a plight.

To be judged on sight.

When again, I’m a good guy, proper and polite.


I care not for the costumes that you choose to wear

Of prosthetic clothing and someone or something else’s hair.


Nails all nice

Polished and bright

I’m not trying to get with you!  Alright!


A stare that bites

In your line of sight

Doesn’t mean that I want to take you home tonight!


I know that you’re bright

I don’t want a fight

Hello is a greeting – not an invite…


To slither in…..

And talk that shit…


I know that you’ve heard most of it…


But I’m not that guy…

I just said hi!

Does it hurt your face, your wig and clothing to feign a reply?

Just a simple reply

With more than a sigh

When a harmless man walks on by?


I see through the prosthetics, the costume and such…

Even in your natural human state – devoid of the finishing touch

I see your natural beauty and I see your true face

That’s hidden beneath that porcelain plate.


So I’ll try again

This is my third try




I can’t believe it!


You do know how to say hi!

ROFL. Well, some women just want to see how many hoops you'll jump through for them as do some men. I enjoyed the write, Tyrone.

The "natural human state line" paints the perfect picture. Thanks for the laugh.
