At Borders today, I came across a charming little book "Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk" by David Sedaris. However, I foolishly didn't bring my glasses so I couldn't read it. I would love a copy for Christmas though ;P.

Anyways, the title inspired this little masterpiece. :P

The dumbass desires the beauty and won't settle for less.

It's dumb cause he longs for a beauty already possessed.

Oh how he wishes to steal that beauty away,

Sweep her off her feet and make her want to stay.

Forget about her other lover.  He's a phase and it has passed.

Love her so much better, she forgets the other fast.

Mold himself into her mind.  To other worlds she'll doze.

Follow him unconsciously anywhere he goes.

Get angry at the other whores, attempting to make a move.

Take it as a compliment when he tells her to improve.

The dumbass desires the beauty, at least that's what you've all decided.

It's dumb because the longing and desire will be one-sided.

The dumbass desires broken hearts.  It's sad, awful, but true.

Because the dumbass will stop longing when she tells him "I want you."
