Daily Prompt:  Perfume

Ahh, perfume, that light, lovely scent

Of roses, lilies, lavender and yet

There is always that other perfume

The one that drives you from the room

Heavy aroma, seductive? Maybe?

Makes you sneeze, even cry like a baby?

You know the ones, make your eyes water,

Your nose run, the ones that oughta

Be worn in secluded rendezvous 

If that’s what you prefer to do.

I have no problem if that’s what you choose

In your own place, might be inviting the lewd?

But when you’re in public, please spare us your choice

We all have our own, hopefully quieter, voice.
