Pretend



Pretend…Just for me
Just for tonight
That my Kia is a corvette
and all things are right
That I’m six foot two
That my hair is still there
And dark and wavy too

Pretend that I don’t talk
All hillbilly funny
Pretend that I’ve got
A boatload of money
Pretend that I look
Like Steve McQueen
That I still look as if
I were seventeen

That’s really not so much
That I’m asking of you
Just a little pretense
Is all you have to do

Pretend that you love me
Pretend that you’ll be true
Because I don’t have to pretend
…when it comes to you…

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
