Poem: I Want to be Good to the Ladies

I want to be good to the ladies,
For the ladies have been good to me.
The gifts that they gave me were precious,
And most of the time they were free.

When I was a lad and much bolder,
The ladies were gentle and kind.
And now that I’m quite a bit older,
They smile and they say they don’t mind.

It’s true on occasion I’ve stumbled,
Having not been the man I should be.
I confess that some ladies have reasons,
To have doubts about my bonhomie.

Dear ladies, I beg your forgiveness.
My goal is to make it all right.
So, I thought I would call up and ask you
If you had any plans for tonight…

For the ladies on Saint Valentines Day
