she was born to be a gymnast

for she had no bones to bend

she could do the most amazing flips

and cartwheels with no end

 

olympic medals by the score

although some may observed

it must have been against the rules

with body ultracurved

 

and afterward she made her mark

upon the floodlit stage

appeared in world-wide theatre

her act was all the rage

 

she had a ruthless manager

behind her back, he stole

but soon she had him figured out

and took a firmer role

 

she took him on assertively

and got him back in line

alas, it ended her career

for she had grown a spine
