Dating Lesson by Marcie Tau


It began with a smile and glance

Then he asked me to dance

We walked along the beach

Love seemed within reach


Could he be the one

Or were we just having fun

It was official date number four

We kissed at my door


Tonight he followed me in

He could tell by my grin

That I would say yes

And he began to undress


As he took off his clothes

Major B. O. went up my nose

I thought I would die

From the smell of this guy


I needed a plan

To get rid of this man

It was hard to breathe

I prayed he would leave


I blurted it out

No it was more like a shout

I didn’t want to be mean

But I was turning green


He left angry and sad

I was relieved yet felt bad

I grabbed the Lysol and the Glade

What a mistake I almost made


I’ve stopped dating for a while

But all it would take is a smile

To open my heart

And again I would start


Men, let this be a lesson to you all

If you want a woman to fall

Before the date, within the hour

Use deodorant and take a shower
