Love And Affection

I wanted love
and a little affection.
Baby, you took me
half of the way.

You gave me love
and a little infection.
Goes to show you don't listen
to half of what I say.

Ha! Good one, kiddo!

Susie Clevenger said...

This was hilarious!

Fred Rutherford said...

Hahaha I was thinking half the way there is better than none of the way there but then I see the infection part in the second stanza, so perhaps half the way there isn't good. Love the twists you infuse your writing with, creating a completely unique voice. Great job. Thanks

That happens so often. Though, admittedly, people can be notoriously vague in what they say.

Some words are so easily confused in the saying that the speaker hardly knows how far they've tripped ... love and affliction is like prayer and medication, the tooth inside the truth, or the fool's jape inside the wise guy's mouth. Like everyone else sd., you nailed it. Here's to more affectionate, less afflicted days ahead; that requires turning down the heat some, embracing the long simmer over the fast boil. - Brendan
