A Few Visitor Comments

Very nice southern poem. And. Very, very true too. hehe
Very good. Sounds like a lot of southern girls I know.
How true to form,being one I know from lifes experiences.

Southern Bell

Facetious, the least to say!
She can wile her way;
Especially from an unsuspecting man,
And come away with his heart in hand.

Seems so fragile.
She is emotional to a fault.
Always must have full attention.
Crying is her invention.

She wants much and wants it now.
Never a question about how,
She just knows she deserves all,
especially everyone's beck 'n call.

Daddy's little princess.
No other man can take his place;
Or measure up to Daddy's giving,
Surely can't make her a good enough living.

Society stance is at the top of her list.
A to-do and she is right in the mist.
Gossip is her forte-
"My, what's new today?"

Maybe this is why,
No matter how hard they try-
To hear the gentlemen tell;
No man can out-live a Southern Bell!
