Miss America Revisited

Wrinkles deepening with the fleeting years Show worry and sadness and nothing to come. Her starry eyed plans are now in arrears And gone is the look of delicious aplomb. Her world-class body brought whistles and cheers Now hid under muumuus to old age succumb. She works on her tan on manicured lawn Dreaming of pageants until she is gone.
