A Certain Status


She was so mysterious
that I wanted to get to know her,
plus she was soft and tender,
a big part of the reason I liked her
and she had a brand new car,
although that new car didn't come until later
a gift from her Dad when she graduated high school,
probably a part of his master plan
to make his daughter more independent
so she could drive to college in  style,
another perk that he paid for
as he was a successful Doctor in our town
and didn't mind spreading his finances around
in hopes of his daughter achieving a certain status;
it didn't happen exactly as he hoped but
she finally went to college for a nursing degree;
Mary , Mary, quite contrary,
so when you finally got that degree,
you no longer had a reason for me.

"Status" is, and nothing short of divine intervention is going to change that fact.

Maybe you didn't see 'it' coming, but she apparently saw you going. If you want a fast girl, you have to keep up.

Loving Linny Jean is poetry.

If nothing else, you at least have the satisfaction of knowing that you were boosting her status. Not the reversal...

Women. Men. Opposites in so many ways . . . If not for the honey pot we'd never get together.

Mary, Mary, quite contrary.
May you succeed in Nursing!
Thanks for sharing, Michael!

there are reasons to love someone, that we don't control, apparences are strong, but the important (essentail) is to decide for oneself
