THE STORY OF A BAD MATCH
told with a pome, a game, then a tale and finally a challenge for you

A POME TO IRONY

Line up ten rich men in the sun.
and study them each quite well.
Nine of them look like shit;
the tenth will look like hell.

but line up ten studs from seedy bar
and every one's a pip!
so what does this teach us, girls?
You can't tell gold from shit!

PSYCH GAMES YOU CAN PLAY

1) CAN YOU DESCRIBE two or three pretty guys that you wasted time on,
that made your heart beat faster......who turned into CRUD before
your eyes?

2) CAN YOU DESCRIBE a nerd or an UNCOOL guy who turned out to be a
GENTLEMAN?

GOT STORIES? First hand accounts?
I do.

Lovely gal in AZ. She just loves this guy. They buy property together,
her money of course. HE TURNS INTO MONSTERAMA ten months later.
She wants out. She says I'm selling the house and we are splitting up.

HE says "NO". He WON'T GIVE UP THE HOUSE. He won't move either. And to top
it off, he is seeing a new gal pal! EEK. She has to live in this mess she made,
and go thru some further torture, you see....as there's some mysterious law in
this land that SINCE THEY BOUGHT IT on PAPER as two owners, it's half
and half no matter WHO PUT IN HOW MUCH MONEY , even though
SHE PUT IN THE entire down payment and paid half the mortgage payment
and some months more than half as he was jobless for a while.
She's pulling her hair our now, stuck living with this treacherous
schizoid dweeb loser and where is her rescuer?

NONE! Only this  pittance: the appraiser will give her a figure, a value.
The boyfriend can PAY HALF even if it's a low ball figure,
if he can..... and she can retreat with some cash and lick
her wounds but the HORROR, the INHUMANITY......

Ah well. She did it to herself.
I said, go meet nice guys, church, lectures, book stores.
I asked her where she met him. The answer. In the street.
on a PHOENIX STREET. I wouldn't lie to you. Swear to God!

NEVER TALK TO GUYS IN BARS, IN STREETS. There's
just a bad statistic to it! Now, I challenge you as a resourceful,
clever girl to use your POWER STARS to go out into the city
at the right time to posh cafes, lectures, bookstores, church
services, universities and meet a great fellow.
