When It Hurts-J. Ray Paradiso

So, I had a few pops after work an’ was feelin’ loosey-goosey.
Waddlin’ on d’lift to my pond on 12 + 1 atop Chicago’s DaftView,
I Hello’d a Monroe blond, wound tight, on her way UP.
“Do ya smell bug spray?” I quacked.
“I think it’s my perfume,” she nada’d; then, bolted like a shootin’ star/let on Aphrodite’s floor.
A friend once asked me, “How do you know when you’re being too jerky?”
“When it hurts,” I advised.
“That’s brilliant,” he said.
Ouch!
