A skirt too tight on Carol Ann
summoned forth a handsome man
who said he had a foolproof plan
to help her get that skirt off
once the dance was over but
she’d have to take him home.
He couldn’t help her now
and interrupt the band.
Carol Ann had often heard
better lines from men and so
she told him she had criteria
to qualify a man who sought
to verify her assets.
First, he had to be a gentleman,
obtain the blessing of her father,
and flash a rock with many facets.
Only then might such a man
have a chance to say “I do.”
