Her Life 


She’s a teenage beauty

in thrall to various males –

so, when the important political announcement is made,

she checks her cell phone again –

when the Orca breaches the surface,

she’s inundated with various text messages –

when the fly eludes the chameleon’s tongue,

she cannot be expected to answer them all –

but when the dark clouds roll by,

she spies the one she’s been waiting for –

I am yours, baby, you are mine.
