The One-Upspersonship Parade

He smiled

she laughed.

He was the first to ask,

"Are you free tonight, Honey?"

but she beat him to the bedroom door.

He came once,

she came twice;

even her cat came

and purred really nice.

But it couldn't change the fact

that she saw rocks on the road ahead

and he saw they were low on gas.

So he bolted first

only to find her already dressed

waiting for him to go.

lready feeling nostaglic he turned to ask,

"How about a twenty-minute reunion?"

She only laughed

her woman's "That's nice, but it won't pay the bills," laugh

handed him his toothbrush

and saw him out the door.
