Poem: Pretty Girls Don’t Do Poets

Pretty girls don’t do poets
Though they think they’re all the rave
Falling for the sensitive types
Who barely can behave
So sensitive and poignant
With words as smooth as song
Troubled hearts are enticing
But not for very long
Though the words may strike a chord
Within a beauty’s heart
They don’t understand the meanings
They do not get the art
How profound do these words sound
Within a pretty girl’s ear
And though their eyes may flutter
That will quickly disappear
And though the poet’s words are honest
And tender in their soul
Pretty girls don’t understand
What all the poets know
