Escort Card - Poem by Ima Ryma

Victorian era required
Young ladies to be chaperoned.
Young men with young ladies desired
An intro that would be condoned.
Hence, the 'escort card' came to be
Slipping the card from him to her,
Bending the rules - some cheekily,
A 'break the ices' to be sure.
For example, a his might say,
'Please, may I.C.U. home tonight? '
And her response a 'Yea' or 'Nay, '
Such caused chaperones quite a fright.

Now, he and she do it by phone.
There is no call for chaperone.
