Not Seeing is Believing

Her Story:

She is in love, an electronic love by long distance

He's so warm, so caring, his words sweep her doubts away

She can tell him anything; secrets known to only her

He's amazing; his life's an open book

So many things do they share in common

Mountain climbing, jigsaw puzzles, and the list goes on and on!

She's never felt this way online before

She used to be wary, but his pleasant ways take all that away

Like a comfortable pair of shoes; he just fits her way of life

And they're the same age; imagine, what are the odds?

His Story:

Oh man, he's really got a gullible one

She said she was 22, so he became the same

He pats his beer belly, and get's ready to type

Lovey dovey; man, what a load of bull!

That's the beauty of the computer age,

You can pretend to be anything, or any one!

Just a little while longer, and then he can work on achieving his goal

Of fleecing her of a lot of money

Just be patient, he tells himself

Good things come to those who wait,

And it doesn't hurt to have a naive,

Gullible person on the other end of the line!
