Don’t Go (Flirting Around)

Don’t go
flirting around
breaking my heart
with your little bit
on the side

Don’t go
flirting around
when we are
in a relationship
(bonded by time-past)

Don’t go
flirting around
HIV-AIDS is with us
as is the abuse of women
and children too

Don’t go
flirting around
the rules apply regardless
girls in pink, boys blue

Don’t go
flirting around
the traditional order is
still for better or for

Don’t go
flirting around
networkinghere
and blogging there

Don’t go
flirting around
since parting
might not be
such a sweet sorrow

Triggered by one of the media male-folk on SAFM’s Sunday Morning “The Editors”
