Of Mrs. X

Too well fed for rebellion,
Too lazy for self-respect, too timid for murder,
Disgracefully steal the trade-mark of the fairytale--
"And they lived together happily
Ever after!"

Of Mrs. Z

Madam, you are ever retreating,
But are never
Some day I shall pursue you
Hoping to see you

Of Mrs. Andsoforth

Old ladies, bless their hearts,
Are contented as house-flies
Dozing against the wall.
But you,
Imprisoned in the forties,
Delirious, frenzied, helpless,
Are a fly, drowning in a cocktail!
