From Art of Mind: Philosopoems to the World
Most Grooms would Love
Bride in White…
But most cannot
Give that Gift.
So Grooms settle for a few botches
And red left-breast stains.
It no longer matters.
A new beginning calls for
I know I certainly would love a bride
Worthy of White…
Not just physically but spiritually…
but I guess physically is all we can really ask for…
But how many really
Get that Gift?
So…since that gift is so far out of reach…
And there will be color regardless…
I see nothing wrong with choosing a Rainbow—
Even if They color her a “Ho.”

I still say he’s got it made — although They think
And even if they don’t last or workout…
Sometimes even white doesn’t come out the other end

They say, “She’s a Ho, not a Housewife…”
He’ll have Great Sex for a
Long, Long Time:
The next best thing to a Bride in White.
