Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
divorcee learning
"How it is!" by bertodi
Your skin is like marble
isn't it dead people who have skin like marble?
the impotent doctor soothed and tuned by Meyer

who uses his stroking hand
I love your name he added
limply calling the orthodox bland

I hate Germans he reports
-oddly, german nuns re-baptized me
with this name he loves

Ok it is latin
meaning new life
but generally used in Germany-

I don't put things together yet
deep in shock though unaware
after desertion by ex after decades of years

leaving us penniless literally, for lab amusement
high and dry, human research messing
there in an unknown city, being tested by sadists

He himself later visits Berlin
at the same moment as the thigh
with flacid thoughts of his own

remembered its pounding Austro-Hun force
under a podgy, semite paw, points
and your name fascinates me

yes and is the wife pregnant again?
that totally Germanic label, he meant
Tears cried in humiliation in pain

doesn't he eat their pale Rabbi's sandwiches
at their orthodox Hall filled with guests
serenading this Jew who so demeaned them

His Rabbi demanded,
please take care of her
deeply in shock, wept bitter tears

When dumped after a long marriage
it is like becoming a teenager again
learning the ropes

all over again in a different situation
after the security of marriage
Divorcee, dumped, however decent

fair game for all, I found!
especially with Research playing remote
secretly to amuse themselves with real people

--but was it not they
affaire de coeur
who warned their liberal brothers

going over the top again-
in the fourteenth century
back in Hamburg

to take care, quite bluntly
for both of their sides
and the converted too, with care

took it all under the belt
these the hoi polloi we stood by!
but everyone scorns the truly religious

those who really believe in the best
those who try to live up to their beliefs
those whose warning always come about!

forgotten that they had been warned
when revenge takes a big boot
forget affaire de coeur, his is physical!

forget plain friendship!

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
