Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 399: ‘Your First Spring Date (I Want To Be)’: A Love Letter In Verse

 

“Your First Spring Date”

Old Man Winter has lingered a tad too long 
And you’re eager to turn the seasonal page,
So ready to slip into that light-fabric gear
And free yourself from the heavy clothing cage

I’ve a proposal to make for your consideration alone
Call it a wish I’ve held in need of a grant,
What’re the chances I could be your first spring date?
This new season’s revelation that romance is extant

A concert is enticing, your favored eatery has merit
Brazilian salsa, Chi steppin’—we can dance the night away,
I’ll recite to you my poetry at a quiet neutral site
By moonglow and candlelight, for you the piano I’ll play

But if there’s an outing to augur the essence of spring
Under sunlight a slow row with you on the lake,
A satchel full of sweets and make-your-day treats
The serenity and tranquility will take your breath away

Let me ease you into spring, the start of a new fling
Jasmine-laced honey green tea with brandy hints,
May gently rock the boat but, woman, we’ll simply float
Overcome by the fragrance of honeysuckle scents

I wanna row you straight into the sherbet sunset
We’ll put away the trials of your winter storm survival,
It’s a new day, a new season, time for a new love
Are you ready for a mind, body and soul revival?

The high seas this may not be this time around
Our maiden voyage need not navigate waters less tame,
Your voice I want to hear in the bosom of nature’s still
On the paddles I’ll inscribe the initials of your name

A reminder of this day, should it never come again
So difficult would it be that I accept such a fate,
To have pampered you Friday is forever my memory
This privilege bestowed to me: Your first spring date

Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 398: ‘Oprah Sold & Everyone Hates GE’: A Love Letter

 

“Oprah Sold & Everyone Hates GE”

 

My Angel,

Per the March 6th SEC filing, Oprah sold 2.72 million shares of Weight Watchers stock. She sold 2.36 million shares and donated 361,000 shares to her charity. Prior to the sale, Oprah owned 6.3 million shares bought at $6.79 per and she controls options to buy an additional 3.5 million shares at $6.97 per. The stock (ticker: WTW) closed today at $63.38. She’s made about 9 times her initial investment—a nearly $150 million profit. She’ll make even more on the options going forward. Genius, she. And WTW has brought aboard DJ Khaled in a pitch role.

We, too, sold about half our shares. I intend to let the remainder ride and see what Khaled does for the numbers. As long as Oprah’s in, we see no reason to sell altogether. I advise you to do the same.

On General Electric (GE):

GE is the ugliest, most hated, most toxic, most diseased, most heartbreaking, most inglorious migraine-inducing so-called conglomerate in the history of American-born and -bred industrials. Its fall from business-titan grace is shameful if not borderline criminal. Each and every criticism and profanity spewed about it from former/current shareholders and sideliners alike is justified and much deserved.

But this ain’t Enron nor WorldCom.

And that’s why I’m buying as many shares as possible at these firesale prices (just under $15 per) . . . before Buffett gets in.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Pamper-Her-Friday without the “pampering,” would it? So, what do you say we do a bayside dinner at Mindi’s Cove and take in “A Wrinkle in Time” at the show? On the drive up the coast you can tell me how it feels to be the owner of a treasure chest of GE shares that’re sure to bounce going forward—in addition to the WTW shares I sold at 8-times profit in your behalf.

With a little patience, we can hit the jackpot and then celebrate once again on a Pamper-Her-Friday at the end of the rainbow.

I promise it’ll be worth the wait. Happy Pamper-Her-Friday, angel.

The very thought of you,
Rg2

Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 397: ‘Share the Rain with Me Tonight’

 

“Share the Rain with Me Tonight”

Your hair? A simple pony tail or bandana wrap
Tonight’s forecast portends a steady downpour,
I want us under one roof facing my fireplace
Should it shower all night, we’ll simply ignore

The pitter and splatter of droplets on the window
In Southern California hardly ever does it rain,
I want you near me to mark this rare occurrence
All week long has been your fragrance on my brain

This creative romantic writing thing gets harder
and harder, it does, except when I write of you,
The wordsmith comes out, this pampersmith then shouts
Breathing on you night-long until the morning dew

Fogs the pane so thick to fingerscript your name
Hopeful the clouds disallow moonlight to break through,
Rain, rain, don’t you dare go away, please stay
And multiply this Pamper-Her-Friday by two

An extended stay to accommodate our extended play
Woman, we can talk, joke, laugh, and even pantomime,
If it becomes an all-nighter, I’ll be your candlelighter
We’ll get lost in one another with no regard for time

Just come, won’t you come? and share with me some
Slow-cooked jambalaya with the most tender andouille,
With basmati so fluffy and whose grains so fragrant
Once sampled on your palate and you may even chew me

Take me in small bites and let’s indulge in the delights
Of this wet-weather sequester with a sweet table red,
A romantic comedy sounds nice on the 4K device
On my chest, here, come and rest your tender head

It’s a stormy, rainy night in Southern California
On the quilted throws by the fire we’ll lay,
Close your eyes and let the rain fall endlessly
And let me breathe on you, woman, it’s Pamper-Her-Friday

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

Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 394: ‘Black-Girl Magic Needs Romance’ A Valentine Ask: The Romantic Valentine Collection by Rg2 (35) Vol. VI

 

 
“Black-Girl Magic Needs Romance”
 
Was it last year that you attended
a singles’ concert for that special occasion?
With all your girlfriends entouraged
Woman, you managed a romantic evasion
 
There was laughter and myriad girl-banter
And skinny-olive martinis galore,
The stage performer, oh, was he sexy
Though quietly you wanted a little more
 
In fact your craving was quite different
If your truth were to be truthfully told,
Your mind escaped that hot, sweaty venue
and ventured into the winter night’s cold
 
Of February was your heart contrary
Though black-girl magic is truly real,
Mocha-man mystique: there’s something to it
Can I share with you how heavenly it feels?
 
Give me the day or give me the night
Let me take you into the California breeze,
The lush viewscapes of the desert valley
Into my company your virgin heart shall ease
 
An exquisite table, something like a fable
You may even question your very own eyes,
Let your hair down, we’ll be in nature’s sound
As we sip bubbly beneath the Pacific skies
 
You want a man at full attention, don’t you?
Tell me your romantic story, I’m all ears,
I’ll be the interviewer; you, the interviewee
Our time will only grow better as sunset nears
 
A black knight in shiny, romantic armor? Fiction
Yet in every fiction lies a grain of truth,
To hell with what your girlfriends said last year
Woman, I write this ask because I’m your proof
 
That romance still lives in the heart of a man
Right here, right now, woman, I’m your Valentine,
If you feel me within, somewhere within your heart
Then tell me, I need you to say you’ll be mine…
 
Say it.
 
Woman, say it….
