Seeking a Geek

geek
 
I am seeking a geek with a studious streak
Of dashingly bookish panache,
And the hex of huge specs flexing phrenic prowess;
A glinting-lens, tortoise-shell flash.

Give me highbrow-wow now with a splash of know-how
To spice up each dowdy grey cell;
I am yearning to gain a superlative brain 
Equipped to out-skip a gazelle.

I am craving an egghead with a bountiful hot-bed
Of off-the-chart smarts on display;
A bright dude well-endowed with a noggin thatís proud
To fire up and light up my day. 
 
I will never eschew an intent, naked view
Or finely-honed organ appeal;
Iíll find me a scholar who makes my mind holler
For more of his cerebral zeal.
 
While my shining Einstein takes his erudite time
To part with his genius kiss, 
I won't whip off my kit for the fittest half-wit
In the interest of ignorant bliss. 
 
I will sit on the shelf and Iíll save my good self
For the whiz that Iím going to wed, 
Praying a coffin won't precede my boffin 
To carry me off in instead!
