Bring On The Construction Crew (Wishful Thinking)


The days are getting cooler, and beach time is nearly past.
The time for ogling male eye-candy is leaving us real fast!
Soon, there’ll be no more Speedos on the beach,
Summer tourists gone from reach!
The six pack abs I see today may be my very last.

Months lie ahead before another summer season;
Until then, there just no tempting reason
To spend time strolling on the shore.
Fully clothed beach bums are a bore,
And dog walkers just aren’t pleasin’.

With luck, they’ll be working on my street—
Indian summer would be sweet!
The cool air would be erased,
Hard hatters bare to the waist
Would be my eyes’ autumn treat!

Just stopping by to say hi and thank you for visiting my blog the other day. There is no shirtless guys around here because the weather has been down right chilly for the end of August! Strange weather this year!

In my experience 90% of these men will be gay. Straight men don't maintain their bodies this well. Still, quite the sites to admire...

DiPaola Momma said...

Something about these men doesn't look right....where is all the chest hair??? ARE THEY PART OF THE 'VILLAGE PEOPLE'? I like six pack abs, but, come on, give me more muscle, really tan and some chest hair!

Entrepreneur Chick said...

Eva? :::whispers in ear::::
Those guys are gay.

Deb said...

Yeah!

I see what you mean.

About the candy.

Visiting from SITS.

Sweet dreams.

Eva Gallant said...

In response to--

Entrepreneur Chick: That doesn't mean they aren't nice to look at! lol--I'm not asking them to perform!

Jen: you're awfully picky for someone older than I am! (She's my sister--I can say that!)

Kinha: I'm sorry, I can't read Spanish, and google translate doesn't work on the comments.

One Sassy Girl: I agree--I was talking Eye Candy, not lets see if we can get laid! lol

Vodka Logic: You are so right! And those are the ones who never do!

jules said...

You're a total poet! This was great and thanks for posting the fab Haiku on my page too!

Melissa B. said...

I'm a swim team Mom, and have to say I prefer Speedo men to construction guys myself. But your poetry has a certain ring to it.

Too sexy for my shirt,
too sexy for my shirt,

I did a post on a real construction crew I came across this summer. We had a lot of fun with that post. Damn those are some fine looking men.
