What Time is it?
By Roxanne Rocksteady Jones
It is time for me, Foxy Roxy Rocksteady Roxanne Jones to let my secret admirer
Troy Emmanuel, who has been in love with me ever since he was 13 years old and my baby brother’s best friend ever since elementary school
He has finally found me as we look into each other’s eyes and smile, as we bump into each other downtown
We’ve been dating now since August 2019 of last year
He has finally got his dream come true to tell me that he has been in love with me all these years
As we go on our first date to JB’s Barbecue Restaurant we’re waiting to pick up our barbecue ribs order to go, we look into each other’s eyes, holding hands
Smiling as we walk to the park he’s trying to steal a kiss from me
He has his jukebox on the picnic table
We’re dancing, smiling, looking into each others eyes
He whispers into my ear, saying
You think I just want sex from you, I’m falling in love with you all over again
Me and my wife are separated and haven’t been together in three years
I’m going to the courthouse and get my divorce, because I want to marry you
Will you finally make my dream come true and be my wife?
My heart skips a beat as he dances with me in the park
Stealing more kisses from my juicy lips
As we’re melting together in each others arms, what time is it?
It’s time for me Foxy Roxy Rocksteady to let my secret admirer, Mr. Troy Emmanuel's dreams come true
To let him keep kissing me on my juicy lips and to let him keep holding me in his loving arms as we’re dancing in my living room floor, me and my sexy Victoria’s Secret negligee, him in his sexy pearly white boxers. We’re dancin to our favorite jams of Aretha Franklin, Teddy Pendergrass, Gladys Knight, Smoky Robinson, Whitney Houston, and Barry White.
As Troy turns down the lights, as I Foxy Roxy light a candle, Troy sippin on his E&J Brandy, I, Foxy Roxy, sippin on my lemon strawberry margarita, we’re looking into each others eyes, smiling laughing as Troy tickles my belly button, whisperin in my ear, saying, I can’t believe my dream has come true. I finally got my Foxy Roxy Rocksteady. Ms. Roxanne Emmanuel.
We both laugh, hold each other in our arms, and say, I do, I do, I do love you.
Me & Mrs. Jones, we got a thing going on, always and forever.
