Zorba’s Advice

the fifth troilet

“When a woman sleeps alone,
It puts a shame on all men.”
you must love her to the bone
If a woman sleeps alone,
you must seek to hear her moan,
be the rooster to her hen;
If a woman sleeps alone,
It puts a shame on all men.

I, too, subscribe to the view that men's purpose in life is to pleasure women!

You've got quite a handle on the triolet now! You could probably do this in your sleep!

nice ... reminds me of Bryan Adams song, "Have you Ever Really Loved a Woman?" both of our daughters - grown and married now, insisted that the men they went out with had to know this song before they would consider getting serious with them ... nice ...

Smile, nice inspiration for this Selkie story I'm strugging to write.

Fun triolet.

Ditto Cressida and Mama Zen.
Nothing else to say.
