Like Humphrey Bogart -
or Woody Allen -
you can play again Sam.
Let the girl go free,
yes set her flying,
it's many a marriage find
that's an earth-bound-dying.
You tell me there are folk worse than you.
Morality by comparison is your favourite view.
"Get behind me demons," you sure do say,
but then you ask the angels to turn away.
Your very-pretty-face and sugary-tongue
would even leave a courtroom jury hung.
Only a good judge of character may fathom
that as to depths, girl, you just don't have them.
A 'Fear Of Flying'?
That's not Erica Jong.
'How To Save Your Own Life'?
She's saved more than one
via her novel-writing
and her versifying.
Funny-Jong sure can
have no 'Fear Of Flying' !
