There was a SKUNK in my woodpile


When I first saw you I was lost in a Love Maze,
But what I thought was Brad Pitt, turned out to be Gabby Hays.
Blinded by self imposed fantasy,
I convinced myself, you were the one for me!
I was dreamy-eyed and love drunk,
I had just cozied up to a Low-down SKUNK!
I can't understand the attraction, do tell,
I guess I had just lost my sense of smell!
I think of myself as life smart,
But not too bright when it comes to affairs of the heart.
You are a Shallow Hal and a taker,
You are a selfish whiner, a bellyacher!
For the time I wasted on you, I am still kickin my ass,
You are a liar and your lovin was second class.
My sense of smell is now in the pink,
Cause I now can smell you and you really STINK!

Music: Dammit

For all that read and comment, THANK-YOU

Those that insist to sleep with a skunk lover can't blame the emotional deodorant for no working...

Well you certainly have an interesting way of seeing this situation. Sometimes our senses get a little skewed and have to re-balance.

I love the music and the metaphors my friend. This hits home in a big way. Not because of a similar situation but because I actually have no sense of smell. Now this really STINKS.(lol) I could step on a skunk and never know it. Sorry if you had to go through what your poem says. No one deserves that kind of treatment. Peace, Love and Blessings Always, Paul.
