The other day, while I was lonely,
I decided to have a look and see
What, in the way of a nice boyfriend,
The expansive internet had for me.

I saw one that caught my fancy
And clicked "Yes, I'd like to buy."
"Billy-A good listener," it said.
That's why it caught my eye.

As I signed off the wondrous web
And tried to settle back and wait,
A few crazy afterthoughts crept in
About my newly purchased date.

These worries soon grew elevated
As I let them start to freely flow,
And I became simply terrified
At what I didn't know.

Hair could be bluntly growing
Out of his large and wrinkled nose.
There could be scales upon his arms
And even warts between his toes.

His breath might be so horrid,
And his speaking awful too!
What if he has dreaded cooties?
Oh, what's a girl to do?

And what if his only personality
Is really quite a drollsome bore?
OH! I think he's already here;
Someone's beating on my door!

One last flood of questions came
Before I met my chosen mate,
But he knocked on the door again
So the questions had to wait.

I checked my hair, smoothed my dress,
And quickly grabbed my coat.
Opened the door, completely shocked,
For, there he stood---A GOAT!
