Charles Shaw, how I love you.
When I am cold, you warm me.
When I am sad, you bring smiles to my face.
Charles, you are the only man who makes me happy,
You’re strong perfumes make me feel so sappy.
You are the only one who willingly goes in the box,
which I guard with big shotguns and locks.… read more “Charles Shaw”
