('90 / America)

She Saw A Man On Television

She saw a man on television
In a suit and tie
And he wore a fine felt hat
Cocked over his eye.
She saw him sing and whistle
And dance a little step
And she wished the men today
Would not be so unkempt.
She saw a man on television
Woo a pretty lass
With smiles, winks, and daffodils,
And diamonds made of glass.
She saw him tip his hat to her
And offer her his arm
And lead her to the dance floor
With gentlemanly charm.
She saw a man on television
Smile with easy grace
And wished that she could find a man
With such an honest face.
But she knew that man on television
Was a dying breed
And suits and ties and tall felt hats
Had all grown obsolete.

at least she has the TV men of old. nice poem. well done. thanks for sharing.
A remarkable poem, Sophia! I notice that when I hold a door open for a lady, they are shocked that someone would do that. I receive many thanks from them for doing that! Very well done! A ten.
