Saying Goodbye to a Rococo Lady

(a Freeloader’s Farewell to his Lady)

“Oh, parting is the sweetest sorrow,”
is what a “wise” guy once had said,
and so, that rascal gave you notice,
packed up his stuff and fled.

Don’t be sad, my dearest lady,
and, please, don’t shed a single tear,
as he departs from your chateau,
and henceforth lives no longer there.

That rascal had once endeavored
to live with you, shared wine and sweets
and played Corelli on his cello,
but now I fear, he’ll walk the streets.

I suppose, now ended has the spell—
but then again, who knows? Time will tell.
Note:(anyone up for adopting a stray, like me, just for a day? I’m an easy keeper--
By sheer coincidence, I play the cello, too) lol.

I know, those guys are around, always ready to take advantage of some woman well endowed--physically and financially, but you and I could never sponge off some goodhearted woman, even if she wouldn't miss a million bucks from under her mattress. (Any idea where I might find such a hapless damsel?) Thanks for reading, Sir.
