silent siren

Fascinate

Her goal every day

To bewitch

And to charm

Effortlessly she would float

As though she had wings

role model

Untamed as she was

People were fascinated

With her behavior

She, a spirited woman

Who created her own rules

nice try

Eyes

Rolled twice

About face

FORWARD MARCH, now

We don’t tolerate

That TYPE of behavior

Young lady, you know better

Than to lick all the chocolate

From the raisin and peanut candies

And then put them back in the covered dish

Is it really love

Her

Mother

Always said

Fancy dresses

And the handsome guys

Were for the other girls

You know, the ATTRACTIVE ones

Not the HIDEOUSLY fat ones

These words just drove them further apart

After all, food didn’t care about looks

Ya Think

The older she got

OPINIONS meant less and less

She turned a deaf ear

Except to those who knew that

MONEY talks and bullshit walks
