Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 396: ‘The Romantic Panther’ A Post-Valentine Ask: The Romantic Valentine Collection by Rg2 (38)

 

“The Romantic Panther”

Admit it, woman: Wednesday was rather meh
The flowers arrived like clockwork—a nice thought,
The question, however, just won’t dissipate:
Are you in love? Or was that all for naught?

Only you can answer the uncomfortable question
The Friday after Valentine’s is an inconvenient truth,
You wanna go out to spark the three-day weekend
But seeing him again is getting long in the tooth

Are you obligated? You the lock and he the key?
Is yours, tonight, an unenviable dilemma?
I suggest you call in sick and come with me
Thai food and then Black Panther at the cinema

The twist: An intimate, private screening for two
I’m taking you to Wakanda, girl, just you and I,
A cache of vibranium will soon be your possession
We’re going beyond VR glasses over the eye

The theatre grows a little chilly in its darkness
No worries, I brought a blanket to cover your lap,
The Stella Rose black stem will be at your fingertips
To request a refresher? On the armrest simply tap

The comfort you’ll feel won’t be by happenstance
Woman, you’ve harbored me long…kinda like a song,
The soundtrack to the tribal freedom fighters on screen
Even the most noble super hero is in the wrong

If he treats his woman sans traditional virtue
You’re much more than an ephemeral Valentine,
Go ahead, rest your pretty head on my shoulder
Yes, we’ve long been on the other’s mind

Here, open this envelope as the credits roll
The contents? Disney stock certificates in your name,
The Panther and Marvel are properties of Mickey
Love, we, too, can win in this investment game

But a player I’m not, woman, I’ve had my run
I just want to hold your hand at the movie, if I may,
We can’t bring the 14th back but tonight is beautiful
Can I kiss you like a Valentine . . . on Pamper-Her-Friday?

Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 395: ‘Bare Feet and Prosecco’ A Valentine Ask: The Romantic Valentine Collection by Rg2 (37) Vol. VI

 

“Bare Feet and Prosecco”

Seldom have I wondered what may inhabit
a woman’s mind as mid-February approaches,
A race between anxiety and anticipation
Susceptible might you be as love encroaches

Your don’t-let-him-get-close comfort zone
Flowers are trivial, chocolates melt away,
What’s love got to do with it, you ask yourself
Isn’t it just another e-commerce day?

An edible arrangement atop your desk;
A Cartier box in signature powder-blue hue;
Sunset reservations for your favored bistro . . .
Are a sample of the things a thoughtful man can do

Let’s take it a step further and get outta dodge
Run away with me, woman, in the spirit of elope,
A getaway to an isle by whose waters we’ll lodge
This shy, poetic and romantic misanthrope . . .

. . . is asking for your hand while blue waters and sand
are backdrop to a lone table dressed in white,
Dinner in bare feet with Prosecco semi-sweet
To you would be my honor this poem to recite:

Were the end of my days imminently near
The second to the last with you shall I dine,
As the moon gives way to final midnight clear
My destiny is defined by your acceptance of mine

Should Wednesday, untenable the day, not work
We’ll delay our rendezvous—post-holiday,
So determined am I to win your heart
My romance is even sweeter on Pamper-Her-Friday

Will you be my Valentine?

Romance by Rg2®: ‘Memo to Sanaa Valentine’: The Romantic Valentine Collection by Rg2 (36) Vol. VI

 

February 2, 2018

PRIVATE MEMO TO: Ms. Sanaa Valentine

FROM: R. Greer II

RE: The Market Correction

The world’s not coming to an end, Sanaa, despite the 600-point drop in the Dow yesterday. I truly appreciate your thanking me for the fair warning I gave a few weeks ago regarding the frothiness of the stock market and the Bitcoin mania. And I thank you for taking heed and liquidating your holdings accordingly.

The breathtaking Obama 10-year stock market run is officially over. The recent tax cuts have got to be paid for and history says that doesn’t bode well for wage earners. Rising interest rates will further deflate the equities market. I’ll still monitor the markets for solid companies that will prosper in spite of the coming downturn—after all, there’s always a bull market somewhere.

Should the Trump administration get the massive infrastructure-spending bill through Congress, many industrial, engineering, some tech and related-services companies will benefit handsomely. Unfortunately, most of the companies have already reached—in many cases surpassed—their 52-week highs, so there’s not much lift to profit from as an investor. I’ll do my due diligence going forward.

Meanwhile, liquid savings will be akin to gold going forward. Some say “gold” itself is the investment to hold when the markets downturn and geo-political instability arises. There’s something to that. But I don’t wholly subscribe to the thought. After all, one can’t very well “eat” gold, can one?

Again, congratulations on your market winners. Do me a favor, would you? Put your profits away in a safe place . . . for a rainy day. The market’s been good to me as well, and what good is a profit if not shared with a beautiful woman?

I was just wondering, uh, well, it’s unseasonably warm here on the west coast for this time of year. What are your thoughts on a picnic . . . a Valentine picnic?

That is, if you don’t yet have a Valentine. Do you?

Tender are my thoughts,
Rg2
