“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 the woman . . . like a forever Valentine. -Rg2
