What we’re made of… #poetry

I found my old poetry books. These date back to college and my early 20s and i found some fun things (and some deep things) that i thought i’d share. I’ll date them all, but please, don’t do the math. #OldLadyPoet

College Assignment: Take a well-known children’s rhyme and change it.

Mary Kay glory
What are big girls made of?
Oprah and Maury
And Mary Kay glory.
That’s what big girls are made of.

What are big boys made of?
Tools and cars
And downtown strip bars.
That’s what big boys are made of.
