Flashback Friday Poetry: Courting Women

“it’s hunting season”
he hollered to his son
“it’s time you learned
how things should be done
first the proper clothing
and other things you should wear
this is a must when hunting
two-legged deer
secondly speech
this you’ll surely need
it is the most important
so listen to me
choose your words carefully
speak in good time
do not interrupt
and no wandering of the eyes
when you’ve achieved their attention
all else is downhill
if you have not
than prepare to be grilled
when you’ve got her
please respect your woman
otherwise she’ll make you
stand over the oven”

Early poetry from James. From the poetry collection Pariah Bound: The Lonesome Poetry.
