I have known many men
Some kind to all
Some foolish like hen.
But there once was a man I’d known
He believed in virtue, a gentleman.
A fruit he got for every seed he’d sown.
The man was an ambitious fellow
His luck held well
His destiny sweet as Jell-O.
The man set out on an impossible task
To woo the best girl in his class
But he did so using lies and a mask.
The girl was smart as she escaped
The spell of lies and deception he wove
Looking through all the fancy promises he’d made.
In grief of deception, the girl was lost.
Her heart broken, love gone awry
The girl cried all day and all night she thought.
The man too was wracked with grief.
He lost the relationship he’d wanted to keep.
Once her lover, she named him deceiver, thief.
This taught the man a lesson new
He chose to be genuine
But now had friends only few.
The man is happier now, more than ever
With lesser pretences
He now lies never.
And the girl has found herself a suitor
With dashing smiles and a promising future
But she still wonders about the first man to woo her.
