Scarlett

Tara must have pulled the ground up
Over her head, you made us all
See nothing but red

Incessant bawlin', rebel drawlin'
Rhett! Rhett! Rhett!
T'was not those phony charms
That drove him from your arms

A petite, whining Southern Belle
From Hell, couldn't see the
Georgia forest in those trees

Face it now, Rhett is gone
Along with the wind, you've sung your last song
Frankly Scarlett, the boy is movin' on

    Well,k Karen, just like the movie and the book you have managed to bring us right into the mix of Gone with the Wind, and I must say it was very enjoyable. I am still waiting for the fishing poem you wrote, so let me know when you post it. Your friend, Lynn.

    Ah yes the rest of us live in genteel poverty compared to our dear Scarlett. If I hear someone say "Frankly my dear..." I'm going to slit my wrists. I really like this write. Great rhythm and heck is plain funny as well. Kilmer

    I love the way you wrote this. One of my fav. movies. Did you ever see the Scarlet Letters? That one came out years after Gone with The Wind. She meets him again. Thanks for sharing this beauty..... Lucilla

    oh Karen, this is SO GREAT. She did make me so angry by the end of that movie. I really enjoyed this one of yours. You have a brilliant mind for satire.

    Harry, A fun write for me. My blender brain conjured this up out of nowhere when I was writing something else. Ha Ha

    I LOVE Gone With the Wind! You've written a fabulous little gem here. I've always thought Rhett was FAR too patient with her.
