The Unfairness Of Angels
Email Poem | Today's Poetry
When I liked girls

When I was kid growing up liking girls

I never thought they'd be rules to it all

The concept of meeting someone

Seemed as straight forward as day and night

Or going to the shop and buying milk and eggs

Although I was lactose intolerant

They didn't have apps or lactose free milk

Back when I liked girls

Such beautiful naive days they were

Living on a planet with billions of women

The odds of romance were high

My mother met my Dad in a shop

And my grandparents met playing cards

Even my brother met his now wife on a bus

Days before technology ruled our hearts

Back when I liked girls

Now courting is sending willy photos

And sexy stories in a text

Where height is an essential requirement

Or seducing you to ones Instagram account

Where swiping right means yes and left means no

Such bizarre rules of social engagement

Dates are like fast food convenient snacks

Is romance really dead?

It wasn't.......

When I liked girls.
