โ€œZOOLANDERS(?) UNITED!โ€๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜Ž

โ€œZOOLANDERS(?) UNITED!โ€ a poem. Thursday – 5 July 2018

When little Sangria was only just five, She-was-considered,

THE! Smartest-girl-alive!

By an early age, she had 10 degrees,

And had driven her teachers (pause) into โ€œthe trees!โ€

She โ€œsaw through IT all,โ€ and The Family Empire,

FLOURISHED! And no one could put out โ€œher fire,โ€

And-no-would-marry-her – or, perhaps,

โ€˜Twas HER choice,

Stage RIGHT!- (pause) โ€œPre-arranged-marriage,โ€

And-she-had-โ€no voice!โ€

She married a foreigner, with kids right away,

And no one-had-taught-her,

About-families-today!

Plus-when she was younger, it NEVER occurred,

To-her- (pause)

The-nature-of-the-sex-she-incurred,

And before her fine marriage, when she-was-forced-to-The-Altar,

Her mama said, plainly, that NO ONE COULD โ€œSALT HER!โ€ณ

โ€œYouโ€™ll NEVER let anyone get-close-enough-to,

Sprinkle your tail – you might be a shrew!

So, forget-about wedding bells in your future life,

No one can-deal-with-you! Youโ€™ll-be no oneโ€™s wife!โ€

Well, Sangria Serriny was just fine with that;

She had lots of plans – under her hat.

So, when she got โ€œhitched,โ€ when it all got set up,

It was quite a surprise! She was one โ€œbroken pup,โ€

And she fought and she clawed and she cursed family,

For wanting to tie her

Like that, (pause)

Painfully.

Yet-she-kept-up-the-amazing – things in her life,

As-a-doctor, a โ€œsurfer(?),โ€ a mother – and wife!

And NOW, itโ€™s long passed! All-this-stuff has transpired!

Children? Grown up! Husband? Expired!

And-sheโ€™s-still-TOO-INTENSE?

Momโ€™s-words-echoed-strong,

โ€œI-donโ€™t-need-to-get-married; I can still get along,

Without-no-no-one! Iโ€™m STILL (pause)

Too hard to handle!โ€

And Sangy Serriny burned-both-โ€ends-of-the-candle!โ€

Yet, one day, a poet, appeared on her page,

And, she thought long about it, and considered him sage (! ! !)

She said: โ€œIโ€™m INTENSE; am I too much for you?โ€

โ€œYes, I GUESS, Honey – but I like you too!

And I can-not imagine being with any,

Gal not-too-intense, or – one-NOT-named-Sโ€™riny!

IF you-were-any-different-I-couldnโ€™t-love-you-so,

Yes, you might just kill me – BUT Iโ€™m [NO ONE],

You know!

Well (pause)

HER MOM SAID-SHEโ€™D-MARRIED [NO ONE] – (long pause)

So, it-must-be-true,

That these two should-be-together! (pause)

They belong in a zoo!
