So She Was Late

So She Was Late

Would it be best to be in a saddle
When you want to be loading cattle
Or only a baby who likes to rattle;
Maybe a soldier fighting a big battle.

No! She is one who never will astound
And wouldn't like to have to have around;
Can you image her when she was crowned?
She was only found while wearing a frown.

Played baseball and did not want to wait,
But she slide and still missed home plate
And was thrown out for having been late;
Having one more child would be great.

    Sounds like a great love poem to me! Yes, it is down to earth and filled with truth. Not all sugary, but with that bit of spice, that is actual love. Long term and delightful, in line with reality.
