“Summer’s First Pamper-Her-Friday”
Now that LinkedIn is the social property of Microsoft . . .
Oh, you hadn’t heard? MS shelled out a cool $26 bil,
My prediction? Twitter is now in some titan’s sights
Growth at 140 characters is rather anemic if not nil
Why am I so confident in my foreshadow, you ask
What does this have to do with our summer’s romance?
Well, it’s the season of business mergers and acquisitions
and there’s nothing more profitable than info advanced
Acquiring knowledge before a business event occurs
potentially translates into a handsome budget surplus,
So I’ve scooped up a tranche of Twitter shares for you
The certificate to be delivered over dinner—at dusk
I’ve made arrangements for a private table cliffside
A calm breeze promises to massage your hair,
Over your shoulder will be an oceanscape backdrop
The ideal setting for our summertime secrets to bare
I’d like to know what strikes your intro-summer fancy
What would give this new season a memorable lift,
St. Lucia? St. Thomas? Perhaps Crusoe’s fabled isle?
Just name the locale, woman, I’m sparing all thrift
Perhaps you enjoy the feel of sand beneath your feet
Alongside a charmer who revels in a slow walk,
An unharmer who abides faithfully by the Romantic Oath:
Is there any harm in holding hands as we talk?
Easy does it, we’ll do it easy, I’m in the least bit o’ hurry
Summer love need not be engendered in a day,
A bevy of sunsets I’d like to share with you, woman
There’s many a tide to watch roll in and away
Ever done a twilight ice cream run, oh, what fun
with fruit nuggets and seasonal berries piled high,
And if you’re a good girl I just may offer you a lick
Uh oh, is that a mischievous twinkle in your eye?
Oh my, I forget, you’ve yet to see me in person
Well, I’ve been told mine resemble Obama’s ears,
Possessing an intellect, not surprisingly, on par
but whose romantic writings defy my years
Can I read some of the unpublished verse to you?
Each line was written with summertime in mind,
Our cliffside table awaits a romantic couple to enchant
with a cabernet varietal to help us unwind
Just the thought of you augurs a summer’s romance
The Twitter shares are yours, no cost to defray,
A season-opening gift to mark this special night
and no better moment than Pamper-Her-Friday.
Pamper the woman . . . and forever live in her soul. -Rg2
