High and Dry

High and Dry

Who wouldn’t feel dejected being jilted by their lover?
It’s normal to be feeling that you might never recover.
Yet when it comes to  loving, let me give you this advice.
Too often love’s determined by the rolling of the dice.
It may come up all sevens or it may come up a bust,
but no matter what your luck is, it simply is a must
that every time you meet the jerk who hung you up to dry,
you have to act as though he is just another guy.
Exercise some sangfroid. Act happy and aloof.
I can guarantee it will send him through the roof.

 

Prompt words today are sangfroid, jilted, advice, aloof and recover.

Of course no one would ever jilt any of these irresistible women. This was a photo for a joint art show I did with three friends years ago. The show was titled, “Now Hanging,” thus the photo of the four of us hung up to dry…

    REPRISE
    Four women, all dressed in black,
    two smiling, and two with faces slack,
    How can they not even admit they loved a hack,
    or convince me that they do not want him back.
    Now the other two , shown with great big smiles,
    and are ready to try again, for a few more miles,
    it is so apparent that they have their whyles,
    some unfortunate man, they will very soon beguile.

    Been there, been done that way, what can I say~!
