Once upon a time, women adored
a man in a top hat
donned in black tie and tails
sauntering with a gentleman’s cane
with a gentleman’s air.
You look lovely this evening.
May I have this dance?
You dance delightfully.
May I call on you and your family later this week?
I have your father’s permission to make you my wife.
Call me Mad as a Hatter, but I prefer the
man in faded jeans
dressed in white oxford, untucked
walking with confidence and contentment
with a gentle man’s heart.
So good to see you.
You look amazing tonight.
Take my hand.
It feels good with you in my arms.
C’mon, love, let’s go on home.
Will you share the rest of your life with me?
Yes, Mad Hatter that I am,
I much rather prefer the man in faded jeans…..
