SHOT GUN WEDDING by Celine Leduc August 2015 edited by Norman Simon
A man forced to take responsibility,
A woman impregnated by the man;
He lusted for her,
She lusted for him;
He knows her in the biblical way,
She knows him carnally;
He blames her for his fall,
She reminds him, "You wanted me;"
He says I wanted you but not the child,
Is he not responsible for the child?
They lusted after each other,
Yet never really knew each other;
Friends they were not,
Friends they never will be;
A shot gun unites them,
Sadly not their LOVE child.
JUMPING THE BROOM by Celine Leduc edited by Norman Simon
Parents speak to each other
A couple wants to be one;
Similarity is needed;
Complement each other,
Her strength, his weakness;
His strength a student, he is,
He learns from her and she from him;
They are different, yes,
But so similar as each knows the other;
Friends, they become, best, they are,
First criteria they do not jump the gun;
Lust comes, lust goes
Friendship lasts forever.
