sometimes lovers fart
by L. Stewart Marsden
sometimes lovers fart.
sometimes say stupid things.
sometimes they can’t bare their heart.
sometimes they’re ding-a-lings.
sometimes their armor’s full of rust.
sometimes their steeds are nags.
sometimes their hopes are total busts.
sometimes they’re just windbags.
sometimes they totally fail you,
sometimes day in, day out,
sometimes they’re not so true and blue,
sometimes they’re awful louts.
sometimes, when you’ve but lost all hope
sometimes when all is grim,
sometimes you’ve used up all your rope,
sometimes look back at him —
sometimes forebear his fallacies
sometimes recall this rhyme
sometimes he’ll fall upon his knees —
forgiveness is divine.
