He never started relationship
He only asked for lunch dates.
After this he offered dinner
Promising not to keep you out too late.
Saying he would drop you home.
And then without any warning,
Striking your name off the list
He made in his mind that morning.
You barely notice or care at all
That he seemed to have moved on.
And wonder how many others
He had brought out with his charm.
One evening you’re sitting in a bar
And Mr. serial dater walks in,
He sits with some younger friends
Quickly changing the topic to him.
To his captive audience
He boasted of his conquests.
Of dates with lovely women
Whom he would always impress.
You turn on your stool,
Realizing he doesn’t recognize you,
Starting to listen to his report
Others started listening too.
Then a group of ladies walk in,
He stops,frozen when he sees them.
The place becomes tense
And they walked right up to him.
They asked him kindly to come home,
He follows them to the door ,
‘See you all again next week,’ he shouts
‘For adventures galore and more.’
The older of the three women
Step back inside the bar
Apologizing for her husband,
His daughters lead him to the car
The bartender explained
When the laughter allowed him
That is what happens to old playboys
When the senility sets in.
