Runaway Sam with a runaway plan,
A gift for the ladies with a wedding band,
A hawker and a talker and a smooth operator,
Never worked a day, a greater labor hater.
 
Into bank accounts of the ladies so smitten,
Lovers of his words in poetry unwritten,
Promises and vows of a wedding day ahead,
A Samulated, calculated exit instead.
 
“Where goeth that no good for nothing Sam?
That wonderful, marvelous, hunk of a man?
That charmer, that yarner, that man I possess?”
Said the lady at the altar in the wedding dress.
 
“I’m far away in another town
With another name on distant ground,”
So saith the spirit of Runaway Sam.

Yes beware! Ladies don’t get Samulated.

I’ll spread the word around in our Senior Village of gentle wonderful giggling vulnerable lovely lonely beautiful ladies.

Yes Sir! Sir Galahad I am! :—))

Love it. Thanks Robert.

Hi Charlotte. Maybe someday some woman will leave him stranded.

Sounds like women have to beware of Sam. He'll leave you heart broken, and stranded.
