She walks in beauty,

like the night,

rollers in,

and hair a sight.


Face pale green,

a beauty pack,

eyebrows plucked,

and then drawn back.


Pyjamas pink,

and winceyette,

such a look,

you won’t forget.


She walks in slippers,

polka dot,

and thermal socks,

hot to trot!


A classic beauty?

you decide…


refused this bride!)
