FOR FREEDOM..... GONE FISHIN'                        

                 Ed Iacona

For the intangible concept of Freedom

There has been many a loss of life.

In the name of her script for "Freedom",

I was forced to lose my wife.

It was her sad solution,

For her personal evolution,

Freedom was her revolution

From loving marital institution.

In conflicts concerning Freedom

This struggle really vexes

For I have been re-called to join

The Battle of The Sexes.

Within this forced fed Freedom

There's an aspect that I hate,

Having in common with my children

Of finding someone to date.

There's many an online dating site

Floating on the shining Cyber-sea

With many a lovely lady whose

Bait is waiting just for me.

I sniff and write to ladies lines,

Feeling I'd be quite their catch,

Only to find in sad despair that

They think we're no match.

Swimming, searching for the right line,

To be hooked and then give my all.

But, as I keep getting thrown back,

I think that maybe I'm just too small.

In the matter of physical chemistry

I shrug saying, "What the heck..."

Most gals don't look like enchanted Fiona

And, I don't think that I look like Shrek.

But, when her lure dances by my way,

To her invite I shall not refuse it.

Just because I have my Freedom

I am more than willing to lose it.
