Just in case you aren’t pretty enough

Or maybe a couple three sizes too big

There is one he keeps on the back burner

A “just in case” kind of thing.

Maybe she knows about you

Maybe she knows nothing at all

Perhaps she thinks he is just hard to get

And waiting patiently for him to finally give in to her.


Since he can’t give all of himself to you

Because he has to give some to her

You will fail



A truth learned

From life experience

And a few thousand too many times

Being told

I had nothing to worry about.
