A Pretty Face But A Wrong Attitude - Poem by Francis Duggan
When I was in the Superstore the check out girl to me was rude
I was there at the wrong time and she was in a bad mood
And though she did look pretty her attitude seemed cheap
But like they say of beauty it is only skin deep.
I feel she may be ageist at least 'twould seem that way
Perhaps she does not realize she too will age one day
For the groceries I bought at the Store I felt quite glad to pay
A smile doesn't cost us anything a wise person did say.
A pretty face but a wrong attitude that's life I do suppose
Though in the flowering garden not every flower's a rose
Our attitude affects other people a smile doesn't cost a thing
The whole World sings along with you when in the shower you sing.
Her attitude one would think comes from arrogance or conceit
And if she could only learn to smile she would seem far more sweet
But a little thing like that does not spoil my day the sun shines in the sky
And today we'll never see again so life we should enjoy.
I smiled at her she did not smile back perhaps she thought me strange
And she did not even thank me as she handed me my change
A woman in her late teens or very early twenties and quite close to her prime
But to her I do feel grateful since she inspired me to rhyme.
