Observation - Poem by Dorothy Parker

If I don't drive around the park,
I'm pretty sure to make my mark.
If I'm in bed each night by ten,
I may get back my looks again,
If I abstain from fun and such,
I'll probably amount to much,
But I shall stay the way I am,
Because I do not give a damn.

    If your familiar with her other works than this is the kind of poem that seems inevitable for her to have written. Still that takes nothing away form its cleverness. (Report) Reply
