Wonder Woman's Divorce

The papers were signed It was like drawing a get out of jail free card Freedom can be intoxicating Especially when combined with a half-gallon of Carol Rossi The party was lovely, beautiful, happy people laughing and dancing Except for one exceptionally large woman Whose toe I managed to step on At the exact same time I sloshed Carlo Rossi onto her bosom My apologies fell on deaf ears Word spread quickly that there would be a fight She was going to kick my butt I needed an intervention. Where was my Superman? Where was that guy with the trembling hands that whispered to me That he would always come to save me Then I realized Every woman, when she removed her bra Has a “W” on her chest. Off the bra came As I turned to confront my opponent Declaring boldly that I was going to kick HER butt Six strong, loving arms whisked me out the door and into the car Those are friends I will never forget Safely at home, I sat on the curb under the stars with my dog Alice I told her about the evening She agreed that I was truly a Wonder I eventually put the bra back on But I have never taken off the cape
