Why Not

Who is the well known visitor forgetting
What a scandalous bit of gossip it would be?
Where privacy is not always very private
When the unscrupulous are so quick to see
Why not some filthy lucre just for me? 


For Harry's contest

    Joyce, this is a great poem. Interesting how people are so willing to believe gossip but less apt to believe the truth. Well done. Lee
