 In the town of 700 she was queen

Curved in righteous places --- and girly lean.

A very pretty woman that outwitted all the vermin

Getting all the things she wanted, with very little green.

 

Satin blouses without a bra was standard fair

Two buttons never buttoned, down to there.

Her favorite thing was lace to accentuate her face

On a upscale summer hat, worn upon her flowing hair.

 

Yes, in a town of 700 she came first

But in competition-city, the bubble burst.

No, there was no doubt, it chewed her up and spit her out

Leaving her still hungry. --- A feeling that she cursed.

 

So she changed and learned to twist a well placed lie

She took her lumps and kept climbing toward the sky.

Knocked to the ground, the bell rang, another round

Then she'd rise --- to give it another try.

 

Her priorities changed, as a decade passed on by.

Yes she made it to her pillow in the sky.

But she cashed it all in and headed home again

And to this day, --- many wonder why.

 

Years have passed, and now she loves to belong.

As she says, "Life’s a happy little song.

We are doing very fine in this little town of mine.

Because, being Mom --- was what I wanted all along."
