I Don't Think She's Ugly, She's Just Not Pretty

I don’t think she’s ugly, she’s just not pretty. This girl is one of many I see in this city. The women around here are so dull and plain. It’s not hard to treat any of them with disdain. I’m not prejudiced to those chicks that I find. It’s just that I don’t like women of that kind. I think I can wind up with something better. I don’t want a redhead that looks like an Irish Setter. If that blonde comes out in the middle of the night, she can make a blind man run away with fright. Who wants to get stuck with an ugly brunette? I don’t smoke, but I will have a cigarette. I think each one of them looks like a clown. I don’t want to go. I just want to get out of town. For Kristen's Oxymoronica contest

I think the cities are filled with women like the ones you describe, Robert. It seems more wholesome ones can generally be found in the countryside. I haven't seen this contest yet, but I love your poem. You never disappoint the reader, Robert. Always something new and different from you. Love, Carolyn
