The American girls from New York

When I went to Times Square
in New York
I smiled at one without care

a gal threatened to call 911

I said what the hell
I am square
look here
see there

where did you come in?
I wonder

she smiled and gave me her number
but then I went back into my slumber

what is 911
I did wonder....

Was it her number?

I called and police came in
thank god she was a lady
asked me about my problem
then said ring me up
whenever you wish to
what’s your number?
I asked

but she was fast
she fled

This is what I call a "gender confirmation" poem. lol. Nice job.

Envy is an ugly thing,
so I say
but I can't escape its clutches
When I see lovers
holding hands,
I wish I have a lover
who'll treat me like a man
to chase away lonely nights
and keep me company
when I'm out of the fight.
The right girl just for me
I know its pathetic
but what can I do?
I'm feeling so lonely
and that's the truth..


the whole truth
