The Lady who didn#t have it all
She could pick any man she wanted more or less,
She had looks, career and was considered a great success,
A DR before her name and an alphabet after,
A scholar who only studied and missed all the laughter.
Lately dated all the losers in this land she said,
Half of them were boring and the other half were dead,
I am constantly being wooed she said with a grin,
But of course at university, no course about men.
Her youth had vanished somewhere somehow through the years,
She wore the latest fashions and drove a car with ten gears,
Mother helping desperately looking for one guy,
Someone handsome, not married, and not about to die.
