Now or After

It's easier for men
these days, Grandpa says,
once they understand
there are two kinds  
of women, not just one
as was the case
when he was young.

Grandpa says today a man
can choose between a woman
who wants to go to dinner first
and one who wants to go after.
When he was young, Grandpa says
a woman's preference regarding dinner,
now or after, wasn't a factor.

Back then, Grandpa says,
women were all the same,
as far as he can recollect.
They required a wedding first.
As Grandma told Grandpa  
many times while they were dating,
oodles of time for dinner after.
