Replying to a comment on:
Fragrant Love (Free verse) by Engelbert Humpalot
I embarked upon an affair with a much younger woman
She was beautiful, wanton and abandoned,
Far advanced for her age in the ways of sensuality.
When we made love I lost all track of time
As her heaving, thrusting loins sweated under me.
She wore a particularly strong perfume. musky and exotic
And when I left her bed I reeked of her and its charms.
The problem was this: I was married and could not go home
Drenched in another woman's fragrance, so a solution was needed.
I discovered the name of the perfume from my mistress,
Suggesting to her that I was making notes for a future gift.
In fact, I purchased a large bottle for my dear lady wife
And thank God she liked it enormously and adopted it as her own.
Thus, when I returned home after an afternoon of lust
With my eager, youthful, compliant and unprincipled mistress,
My innocent wife never noticed my saucy indiscretions
And I could sleep in her arms, imagining them to be
The tender brown arms of my lovely young lover.
