Some say a temptress

is a waitress

at the honker or hooters

with chest pillows

that would turn an insomniac

into an amnesiac

and make him forget

all about his restlessness

on her way to Clicks

just for convenience

and her bubble-gum skills

and her special diet is men

cause if a boy

is in her path

those who are not

tall enough to reach them.
