Dowdy Won'T Doody - Poem by Laurence Overmire

She looks radiant today
What is it
I mean
Let's be honest she's had the
Dowdy, frumpy look for quite awhile
What is it that's different
A new hairdo? new lipstick?
It couldn't be a face-lift, could it?


But I don't get it. She looks terrific!
What do you think it is?

I think they call it self-esteem.
