Day 17 – How to ……

How to handle a woman?
No man will ever know.
How to plant a garden?
Put things in and let them grow.

How to tame a womanizer?
Your guess is as good as mine –
they’ve been playing that old game
since the beginning of time! 

How to bring up a child?
No-one will ever agree.
Spare the rod and spoil the child,
seems quite natural to me. 

How to cope with growing old?
We can’t stay forever young,
unless we’ve sold the devil our soul
like Dorian Gray’s picture hung. 

How to finish this poem?
I haven’t got the first clue. 
I wish I hadn’t started it
and I suppose you do too!
