An Engaging Subject

If ever I wish to propose to a woman,
The question won’t simply be “popped.”
Getting down on one knee with a ring at the ready?
That practice should really be dropped.
Such a vital decision concerning two people
Is better discussed in advance.
Putting pressure on one to say yes in a hurry
Means taking a terrible chance,
Even worse if you ask at a public event
Where some thousands of people can see.
Your intended may jump without thinking it through
Or refuse you embarrassingly.
(Having said that, I realize I’ve never been close
To engagement in all of my life,
But I like to believe that I’d keep my advice
For the sake of a promising wife.)
