    Fifty Sheets of Grey


    I put my neck
    on the line for you

    You put your lingerie
    on the line for me

    but obscured it
    with your discoloured

    A definite dilemna which all of us have feared,
    Now, I only buy black ankle socks, and the problems disappeared! ; ¬)

    Hi Godfrey
    Your poetry was recommended to be Wojja. I particularly enjoyed this poem, and your others. I always go for diversity of subject matter. Your poem has that in abundance. I'm new on this site, and just feeling my way around. I have put a couple of items in the forum. Waiting for a reponse is like trying to drink bricks. Look me up some time
