God's Gifts


Gail Potocki. Encouragement for the Heart Growing Fonder.
Ain't no sin to use 
what God gave you
That was her belief
And the good Lord blessed her double
The only thing more perfect than
her body was
her brain
She worked them both
hard
and kept them finely tuned

She was a woman
who could be as sexy as
she wanted
and as lethal as
she needed
a kitten or
a cougar
whichever suited her best

No shame in a little
tease and tickle
if that's what it took 
to get her way
and if not, well then, she didn't mind
a little blood 
under her bright red nails

It was her belief
that if the meek 
were to inherit the Earth
they wouldn't get anything from her
without one hell of a fight.

I think I met her once.
I was of no use so I was ignored.

Sometimes you are the predator and sometimes you are the prey. That's pretty much what life is all a bout, isn't it?
