When we meet tomorrow afternoon

under the station clock,

you will recognise me by my distinctive Come-to-bed eyes,

my Get-a-load-of-this-baby nose,

my Right-you–Knickers-off-now mouth,

my Hey-pretty-lady-you-wan’-jig-a-jig? moustache,

and my Why-Contessa–you-appear-to-be-wearing-nothing-but-my-finest-cologne earlobes.

And, just in case, the crimson carnation pinned to my anorak.

I guess you have only one thing on your mind-- If I was that woman I'd take a good look at you, laugh, and keep on walking.

A chauvinistic poem to the core, light-hearted in a Neanderthal type of way.

Dylan, I love your dry humour :)

and the last word in the closing line
And, just in case, the crimson carnation pinned to my anorak.
was a cracker.

You built up the reader to expect so much more than a guy dressed in an anorak.

Why that sexy little nerd. I'd love to see how he might reveal that montage of simmering, self assured, expressions on his face. haha I enjoyed your poem. Lots of fun. You created a great character.

Guys what if we read the poem backwards and the man wasn’t in the anorak but the woman was?

Just a thought

Great poem tho btw [emoji41]

EDIT: oh wait never mind I just saw the moustache part how could I miss that? [emoji2356]

Still a very funny “take-a-look-see” at how dating the wrong guy looks like.
