Practical Poems, final part

We live in perilous times.

The tabloids have been full of tales of famous married athletes and politicians and such-like sending inappropriate text messages to young ladies. With that in mind, every young unmarried woman should memorize and then recite this most useful poem before going out on a date.


Lady, lady, should you meet
One whose ways are all discreet,
One who murmurs that his wife
Is the lodestar of his life,
One who keeps assuring you
That he never was untrue,
Never loved another one . . .

Lady, lady, better run!

~ Dorothy Parker (1893-1967), American writer of poems and short stories
