Compatibility of the Sexes

sensual1

 

When a good girl and a bad boy get betrothed,

he glimpses heaven while she catches hell,

their sex life is fast, furious, sporadic, and fleeting,

and the only heavenly treatment she’ll ever get

is during recuperation from her injuries in Saint something-or-other Hospital.

When a bad girl and a good boy get hitched

it is heaven up front but hell in the end

when he finds out the “good” sex was only her way

of gaining financial security through divorce of another love-struck fool.

When a bad boy and bad girl get together

their marriage is hell on Earth… but

with a sex life so heavenly satisfying

it must inevitably damn them for eternity.

When a good boy and good girl join as one

their marriage is the perfect union, heaven on Earth

with a sex life so hellishly boring

it can actually earn them sainthood…

unless, of course, they pretend to be bad in the bedroom.

    I didn’t see the end coming, JW. Your poem read so serious, sort of like a life lesson piece, then bam! The last line made me laugh. Well done, my friend. )

      You ought to know that I don’t take the standard stereotypes on face-value, my friend. I love staying on the edge, and if I can bring humor in it, so much the better.

        Even when delivered in poetic form, a little comedy warms the heart. I always enjoy the positive spin evident in so much of your work, my friend.

        Thank you, Cathy. You know your opinion means a lot to me. I think that’s why we collaborate so well, because we always come from our unique perspectives.

    Yeah, it’s sort of like the “two heads are better than one”… You bring along the sun, I the moon, and we put them together to make a whole.

      And that’s not as easy to find as some people think. I’ve had awful experiences when forced to collaborate with writers in college that were not compatible in personality and talent.

        I’ve never collaborated with anyone except you, so I’ll have to take your word on that, JW. I’m off to bed now…good night and sweet dreams, my friend. 🙂

    This about sums it up. They should teach this in schools.
