Let’s pretend we’re in love
I won’t tell if you won’t
We can fool everyone
Even one another
Everyone praises Spring
Summer and Autumn while
Winter gets a bad rap
Ego got in the way
WELL BUGGER ME SIDEWAYS
He said he believed it beneath me.
“Never overestimate me,” I replied.
His response: “Never underestimate
…..how much you may be overestimated.”
But then, given the excellent ongoing snow job
The poor bugger had really no chance.

N.B. In the UK, the phrase “Bugger me sideways” (or a variation of this) can be used as an expression of surprise. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bugger#Etymology)
Two souls incarnate corresponding
By carefully constructed billets doux
(Words: two-faced, don’t you know)
A torrent bursting its irksome banks
Cleaves bare the dismembered heart
Same time constructing barricades
Sturdy barriers hastily constructed
Recipient digests, reflects, ponders
So? Mere high-handed dissemblance
Or else simply a crass legerdemain?
Do either really know the outcome?
The last laugh’s for the onlooker
