Why and Why

Why do great men 

Court their ladies

Then after the marriage  

Courting becomes quite  shady.
Why is romance

Like red roses in bloom

The first  year together  

The other  years in gloom.
Why do we pretend 

To be someone  we’re  not

Sooner or later

We’ll  surely  get caught . 
Now that I’m  older

I’ll  show who I am  

And if I  catch your  eye

I’ve  landed a hell of  a  man.
