Tonight's Poet Corner: Sonnet Solstice #285

I'd Date You, But...
by Belinda Roddie

I'd date you, but you're not really my type,
and though you've made a splash in Hollywood,
I think I'm underwhelmed by all the hype,
and dating me won't do you any good.
I'd date you, but you have an attitude
that, to me, is so toxic and absurd.
You like to argue with me, and it's rude
when you always demand the final word.
I'd date you, but you're already taken
by a sweet guy who dresses tastefully,
and, for the record, he has always been
there for you and your personality.
I'd date you, but it simply wouldn't work.
Wait, you would never date me? What a jerk!
