A Lady from Ukraine

She came alone in nineteen ninety-three From Kharkov to Chicago she had flown With just two bags, but here she could be free Unlike Ukraine, where Life had been postponed She first learned English, then she learned to code A job she got with super benefits She met me and we married, fam'ly sowed A couple baby boys, the sweetest kids We bought a house, remodeled it from scratch Her woman's touch that house did make a home And in our kitchen lavish meals she hatched Prepared with grace, a princess on her throne Her main concern the welfare of our sons Complaints has she? ~ I've never heard a one Iambic pentameter

Not one single complaint? We could all take a lesson here.
