...should be in the "lonely hearts" column...

Older and maybe wiser he is,

But lonely with no one to with whiz,

Only a few arrows he does shoot,

Each year there are less,

Instead now, Cupid wants to go in drag,

Wearing the appropriate gown, yes dress…J

Seen, he has, all sorts of sorrow,

Human beings under stress,

He wants to get to know anyone by tomorrow,

As long as he is buff and tanned & maybe did climb Kilimanjaro…J


No longer does he wish to be a shooter of arrows,

His aim has become with a stigmatism quite narrow,

He does wear as well contacts with a bi-focal lens,

Now he does want with a hot guy to be more than friends,

Maybe too he can own and drive a two-seater Mercedes Benz…J

Never knew the Jersey Devil was pals with old Cupid. I learn something new every day! Thanks, pal.

PS Take some pics of you and he in your new outfits as you wander the Barrens together.
