A Mismatched Love Story
He approached their assignation
with a bit of trepidation,
for she was gregarious
while he found talk nefarious.
With an air of resignation,
he forgave her education,
but though she loved a well-penned book,
he found, alas, she couldn’t cook.
She loved dogs, he had a cat,
but he could get over that
if not the comments that she made
while strolling down the esplanade.
What he found impetuous
was her transforming “Me” to “Us.”
So, alas, they never wed.
He learned to cook himself instead!!
