Green, but No Envy

Had my hair color treated To surprise the wedding guests Shock came at the rehearsal Groom wanted to leave His once-blonde bride had green curls She’d been hoping for brunette Oh, how the bridesmaids chuckled Wig worn at wedding
Sadly, a true story. By Carolyn Devonshire For Dr. Ram’s “Wedding Rehearsal” Dodoitsu challenge

    Super loved this very funny one...wish some coaxing and cajoling had worked on the groom, cuz the idea of a green haired bride did sound good to me :)) Congrats Carolyn on your fabulous win with this exquisite piece...

    Very seldom do I keep a poem in my head as much as I have this one, Carolyn..It certainly brings a new dimension to your personality-You have all these wonderful life situations that you have turned into poetic is just another example. Curious, you wear green hair for St. Patty's Day? ha ha. Congrats on this funny scene!! Gwendolen
