Lady in Red

A Poem

By Mother CombsPublished about a month ago 1 min read

See the Lady in Red

She’ll fill you with such dread

Once you are used

You will be abused

She can’t love

But only shove

She is evil

With a heart the size of a weevil


See the Lady in Red

She’ll make you wish you were dead

She’s very amused

When you are confused

She’ll at least wear a glove

When she hits you from above

Just when you think you will get a reprieval

She’ll go all Medieval


See the Lady in Red

You’re better off dead

You’ll be misused

And all bruised

You won’t know whereof

As she tells you all about her unlove

She causes a lot of upheaval

Because her ways are primeval

Come near, sit a spell, and listen to tales of old as I sit and rock by my fire. I'll serve you some cocoa and cookies as I tell you of the time long gone by when your Greats-greats once lived.

    great poem. brought back a memory of a friend I had who was completely enthralled by a woman who always wore a red blazer. I tried to warn him. He didn't listen. She ruined his "would-be" career and now he sings in lounge to make ends meet. Yep, the lady in red struck again.
