#Toxic #Bait8

Many of the 48 Laws of Power are odd prompts for me. Some have taken two runs to get to what they were sparking in my stream of consciousness. The whole cosmetic & fashion industry is based on this law – ditto for the right profile pic.


*Law 8: Make Other People Come To You Use Bait 

First take:

I’m not playing hard to get

but you have to be hard

if you expect to get me

so I’m glad you like my profile

that you think my pics are hot

but ‘like’ isn’t enough

saying you want more

means nothing until you

do something to get me

I’ll open the door to opportunity

once or twice

if you make excuses

if you present conditional circumstances

it isn’t going to happen

that door will close

yeah I know I’m not all that

but that doesn’t mean

I’ll put up with postponement

that I’ll be grateful

for any attention I may get

I don’t want attention

I want action

so I’m glad you like my profile

it got your attention

you contacted me

the door is opened


take 2

now that I see you

you are not all that attractive

not that well hung

yet there’s something about you

that I can’t resist

you aren’t that funny


or even show any generosity of spirit

it must be that air

of toxic masculinity

that draws me in

like so many people

I find that your machismo

can’t be denied

can’t be contained or controlled

your willingness to go balls to the wall

fuck everyone’s opinions or feelings

has a persuasive quality

I wish the placating

‘you can’t be like that’ sayers


they lack the sex appeal

of your full steam ahead

make no apologies

for anything

if your dick isn’t perfect

you fuck away without regard

because you know that’s

all anyone really wants

they long for the powerful thrust

of that toxic masculinity

they are eager to die for your attention

they may be critical

but you know

that secretly in the depth of their hearts

they with they had the magnetism

that drives the black bile of your sperm


Like my pictures? I post lots on Tumblr
