A GUIDE TO COURT-SHIP…but not as we knew it..

Filed under: General — mama @ 10:09 pm Wed 29th August 2018

used to be that a man could be the suitor
is he now the suitee

used to be going steady
now just going no where

used to be love and romance
could be a noose around your neck

used to be a coming together of the sexes
now only ending in senseless vexes

used to cummulate in a ring and a forever
now its a never ending nightmare

used to be someone to treat
now endless cost and need to retreat

used to be courtship
now just court shit!


  1. His whirlwind romance turned into a post courtship tornado.

  2. It’s easier to know where where you have been
    than to know where you are heading.

    The journey however is in the step
    not in the footsteps

  3. A mental health institution used to have debates among his guests.
    Over time, they began to speak in Quotes.

    One said

    if you do not know where you are going

    at least know where you come from.

    Another agreed and said

    the world is old

    but the future will always come from the past.

    some pedantic idiot summed the two above up as

    Yesterday’s actions are today’s realities.

    Someone jumped up and said:
    Create your own reality!”

    Someone else said
    choose your own reality”

    The last two began to argue between “create” and “chose”

    Billy was asked to settle it. He said,

    Reality, for most, nowadays, is a dream long discarded.

  4. anger flows, it blows out of my nose, it lands on the chair, still nobody there, at least my hands are not clenched as I think of that wench, let the anger die down and put on your crown.

  5. feel like Mrs Sam Hunt, a likely Sam C…t, what am I to do , but say a Sam new, words that say hey now there, hey we care, for what is true and what is fair, time may still be there.

  6. If you’d drunk like a fish
    You’d be no dish
    If you were as bad
    As Sam
    Damn, you’d be rash
    And skinny enough to
    Double up
    And slip in the trash.

  7. Thanks Evan…
    I was as drunk as a skunk
    and recently I HAVE shrunk
    oh no, i never actually liked Sam that much
    so I must not become a lush
    just a little train wreck
    the temporary kind
    just enough of a wreck
    such that I dont lose my mind

  8. Once I Saw a skunk.
    It had lost its funk.
    Perfume only was in his gunk.

  9. It’s funny how words can be written
    On paper by the writer (court documents)
    However, interpretation can be a whole other
    Story. It makes me wonder or there is no
    Wonder, why, there is this saying where
    No emotions are allowed because for some
    Unknown fact, which doesn’t make sense,
    Emotions are presumed straight away to be
    Anger….I don’t know if i should disagree
    With that right now because that could be
    Held against me for the rest of my life.
    Just saying. Not being smart….just raising
    My own topic like some people.

  10. It’s like sorcery. Witchcraft, spells.

  11. or PAPER, SCISSORS, ROCK.. the PAPER covers the ROCK and turns him soft so the SCISSORS can finish him off.

  12. @10 and @11

    Yeah, it’s really daunting when your reading
    These papers written about you but there’s
    Vital key facts they’ve left out but because
    You dont have the right representation,
    Which pretty much in my eyes means you dont have
    Representation everything falls right
    Through the cracks, and because its
    Your 1st experience the most killer thing
    Happens because how are you suppose to know what
    Consequence happens from misrepresentation
    When your’ve never being through it before
    And they sure as hell dont care because it’s
    Not there kids and they dont know your kids or you
    ……anyway thanks for respecting my say
    And for understanding it.

  13. Misrepresentation is when they use our kids best interest and welfare to create state abuse

    misplaced trust is when we delegate our reason to someone else on the basis they should know better. (lawmakers, courts and lawyers)

  14. 12,,, Real Mum,,, it is not too good to suppress that emotion, some people care and you can find some in here,,, no doubting that the paper trail is a gravy train and that train dont care where you want to go, and it is so slow,,,,

  15. The more I read, the more I see, of the WOMEN in power that have their hour,
    and what of mine and my SON of said crime, where do I stand with no weapon in hand.
    No platform to speak of injustices’ that wreak, what can one do but to gather a crew.
    With pen as weapon and mind in tact I can at least make a welcoming pact,
    to those that have seen and been to the brink, it is time for action, no time left to think.

  16. Mama, this is the Veteran’s Rest home.

    Comment by Downunder — Thu 13th September 2018 @ 10:59 am

  17. Hahaha,,, at least you called it a Rest Home and not a f..kin Elders Village!

    Comment by mama — Thu 13th September 2018 @ 11:16 am

  18. The Rest Home here..

    I guess that is why, I find myself here,
    and though I’m not through,
    I’ve done my time, committed no crime,
    I’ve cried and tried and plied my way through,
    and now I’m being advised,
    to fight fire with water,
    at least that makes steam,
    it’ll keep me warm,
    so I don’t grow cold.

    Comment by mama — Thu 13th September 2018 @ 11:39 am

  19. and FAI,,for anyones’ information..

    no drams today the whiskeys gone away,
    no drams left in the hoose,
    no neck around my noose.

  20. Here is another Down. System of a Down got its’ name from this poem.

    I do not endorse the use of language in this poem and they don’t talk of using water either. mama.

  21. keen to deploy ‘
    the man and the boy’
    there will never be another’
    another of the kind that will never be blind’
    truth will prevail and handshake will uphold.

    sorry for animastropostrophe, please misgivings….

  22. when your’e a MAN you can LIE
    when your’e a woman no need to LIE
    you can just DENY

    This just came from a conversation whereby my husband said he has lost weight,
    we laughed and I said this was because I had been away this week,
    he said it was part laziness but also a pining for me,
    I said like hell it was just laziness,
    and he said but as a man he can lie…
    then I thought about my most hated advertisement whereby the woman on her way home from work stops in a tranquil spot to eat, no, relish a sweet cake, whilst her husband is at home being mauled by the kids.
