Scarlett's Lament


Scarlett's Lament

Fiddlede-diddlede
Scarlett O'Hara, she
slew all the fellas--not
lifting a hand
'Cepting Rhett Butler proved
Incomprehensible
with, "Frankly, my dear, I
don't give a damn!"

    Just like Joni Mitchell sang in her song: "Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone." There was nothing left for Scarlett to do but go home to Tara.
