8251 The Plague, an Allegory about Dating
[by S. David][art by Carrie Ann Baade]

But she’s kissed
So many
Of them
So many
As if God
Had sent her
A plague
A plague
Of frogs
None of them
The prince
The stories
Her mother
Her friends
Had promised her
And still
They come
And she doesn’t
Poor little
Flower seeking
Escape from
The frogs
The boys
That surround
That pester her
She’s ready
To scream
For none
None have
Her test

33§ [Orig 3/23/10]
