Should Have Listened to Father

Men,

Remember when

Having talks with dad

Meant good and the bad

Both the right and the wrong

And why skirts were so long

How the sight of a stocking

Was both sexy and shocking

But that was back in the day

When our morals held sway

Modesty ruled

Promiscuity uncool

And judgement was quick

And indeed, no picnic

When a lady showed skin

‘Twas considered a sin

Boys were well warned, lest they be scorned

Stay out of harm, avoid loose girl charm

Keep their hands safely folded

Unless they wished to be scolded

It can start with a hand

Not sure where it could land

Shoulder or knee

When a girl is carefree

And oh my, oh my

If you dared touch her thigh

The lust and confusion

And the heat of this fusion

Moral compass then spinning

Without end or beginning

Keep away, fight desire

Cool your inner fire

Or you’ll likely be snared

Your mind then impaired

Blinded sight that feels so right

Controlling your night

You’re free roaming hands

In untouched and new lands

Every curve and every nerve

You’ll know you deserve

Leave none in reserve

Rising heat, so lustfully sweet

Lightly touching, while she starts blushing

With hidden treats, under every pleat

Caressing her chest, with not a protest

Her body is writhing, hips that are grinding

Hungrily kissing, nothing is missing

Fingers are fumbling, buttons unbuttoning

Zippers unzipping, silky things slipping

All you can say, as you think it’s the day

Either be led astray by her lingerie

Stop yourself before you go “all the way”

Show some resistance!

Keep your distance!

From those risqué girls

And their lengths of pearls

Open legs and their fertile eggs

For a moments pleasure

Might just seem like treasure

But that simple act can conceive a pact

And nine months later

You’ll get a job as a waiter

What will you say,

With a child on the way

I should have listened to father

But I couldn’t be bothered

Had to jump into bed

When I should have just fled

Took some years and some searching

Lots of dating and researching

Find that one lifetime love

Not just a “kind of”

Settle down and get married

Instead of this panic and worry

Not what it seems

I hope it’s a dream…

    Haha, this brought a smile. Yep, always listen to father or you may be sorry later. Hard to control those raging hormones though.

    Well, Ralph, I have to admit I have known more than my share of loose girls in my lifetime – maybe it was because my Father was not really the fatherly type. In the end though I did find such a role model in my Uncle Larry. This piece brought so many memories back to me… the good and the bad… Very much enjoyed
