Form a Study Group (KyRenn)
In lieu of study I chased skirts,
Could not resist a girl that flirts.
In life’s a meal they were desserts.
Their pheromones are my alerts.
When any girl would wish to play,
she knew she’d get this guy’s okay.
If there’s a party – right this way,
just hurry, hurry, ándale.*
My education, this subverts,
this frivolity on display.
I think to change, but mind reverts-
Exciting curves! Enticing sway!
I’d never cause a girl to fret
or leave my presence with regret
or leave them wanting on a bet
should their own appetite be whet.
If fun is mutual and fair
and drug abuse you do not bear
just seize the joy while it is there
for when you’re eighty you won’t care.
If on the way a mate is met
and each excites each anywhere,
that is as good as things can get,
so marry her and homework share.
