Will flipping a coin work?

Poetry By: Shannan Browne

There comes a point in a girl's life where she has to make a decision...

Will it make her a legal hoar?

Over two decades of quiet

On a no man diet

Floating in a little bubble

Not looking for any trouble

Living with blinkers on

Merrily singing her song

Simply moving along

Not seeing anything wrong

Travelling to far and away

No reason to be and stay

Then foundations fell away

So home to mend the fray

Turned out she'd been missed

By boys she'd once kissed

Her presence burned in memory

Her perfume still lingering

First their was -vor

And he wanted forever

Then there was -ed

Who wanted to wed

They were both wealthy

And exceptionally healthy

Both loved their family

And were deliciously manly

Both left good impressions

Both desired her affections

She'd never had these attentions

And was no good at decisions

She knew she needed to choose

She didn't want to lose

She felt her biological clock

Ominously strumming tick tock

Neither could dance it seemed

And that had been her only dream

But now it was time for reality

To flip a coin and enter matrimony
