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
