NEEDS OF THE HEART

NEEDS OF THE HEART

He was quite a rube
I knew from the start
But who can divert
The needs of the heart?

We went out to dinner
Who picked out his clothes?
He looked quite disheveled
They were clean, I suppose.

He wore an orange tie
His shirt was bright pink
He asked for some milk
I ordered a drink.

His eyes were so blue
His smile captivating
Something about him
Was worth all the waiting.

He ordered a steak
Then asked for some ketchup
He talked really loud
Kept saying, “you betcha”.

I didn’t mind
Thought he was so cute
Sitting there smiling
In his seersucker suit.
