Like lavender and red roses,
they’re meant for your lovely sweethearts
and their fine, delicate noses;
not to sting the most sensitive parts
or overwhelm the olfactory senses,
daub with the finesse of the fine arts
as love’s a game of great consequences:
love decides on the whiff of a scent,
so smell good or lead to offenses!
Too much scent is gross and indecent;
a little on the neck and the wrist’s
enough to smell seductively fragrant:
so don’t overwhelm like a face against a fist;
by now I’m sure you more than get the gist!
