by Nevada Kerr

She fixed her eyes on the prize
All dolled up and terse
With an out of court compromise
And a coyness well-rehearsed

She rolls the dice and throws the cards
In her garish Sunday best
With meaty tarts and roasted hearts
She feeds a greedy guest

Holding fast to a golden pass
To hobnob with the trendy
She makes a splash flouting class
And turning green with envy

There's no end to her hunger
No quenching her thirst
She's got an aptitude for splendor
Turning stomachs, dishing dirt
An extravagantly ravenous appetite for hurt
