if she can make it on match.com
more questions than any governess agency
dares to ask.
She wants to speak the truth
though truth often brings her trouble.
So this time she’ll slip
into white lies.
Plain? Not Very
Who cares if Rochester waits for her
the other side of a burning house.
She’s sick of gloom
of being the model of every wallflower
in every century.
A hot young star
even Barbie would emulate.
