June Cleaver, with all of her virtues so pure,
was a character much like me.
But do you ever wonder what she would've chosen,
could she have had a secret identity?

*~*

Perhaps "bad girl" June would much rather take
an oppresive style of living.
She would thrive upon dishonest feats
and to accidental wrongs be unforgiving.

Perhaps "bold" June would feverishly rebel
against stereotypical saints
with protests and actions uncivilly due,
promoting a new wave of political complaints.

Perhaps "new" June would dress scantly clad
and dye her hair purple or pink.
Maybe she'd learn how to smoke a cigar
or would habitually/excessively drink.

Perhaps "naughty" June would wreak havoc in town
by developing a corruptive plan
to break up a household of faith
by persuing another wife's man.

Perhaps "faithless" June would lose touch with her soul
and would Sundays remain in the bed,
comforting herself with exccuses for sleeping,
not going to church, instead.

*~*

It seems to be that society has changed
and is lacking the "Junes" of the past.
With all that is threatening our world today,
an encompassing spell has been cast.

There is absence of love and of kindness today,
replaced by dishonesty and despair.
The "good vs. evil" is more present than ever
in a world where we've forgotten to care.

No doubt, June Cleaver would more so today
stick by her virtues so pure.
She'd represent wholeness and good,
continuing her march, so demure.

So the question becomes just this,
asked with certain brevity,
"If you had to choose,
what would be YOUR secret identity?".

What did June say to Ward in the morning?
Ward don`t you think you were a little hard
on the Beaver last night?  
Sorry I just couldn`t resist  
Very nice Sherry  
Me think`s June was a Bad girl that had to live up to the image of a good wife in the 50`s.
