My Guy –

A Simple List to Give the Gist

My favorite male is filled with charm.

I might tattoo him on my arm.

Why do I love him most, of course?

He bests all men, my little horse.

When e’re he sees me, he high-tails

To greet me and hear my regales.

Although he may not understand

He as a listener is grand.

No foul language does he speak,

Nor does his temper seem to pique.

Fidelity’s his strongest suit.

He’s gelded, so the point is moot.

Unlike most men a gal might know,

He cuddles with no quid pro quo.

This handsome one is strong and sure.

His macho ego is secure.

He smiles with ease for our close-ups

And never ever interrupts.

And with a little exercise,

This blessed beast may win a prize.

Of all the guys in all the earth,

One little horse renews his worth.

This bold bright equine is my dear.

As long as I shall have him here.
