DOWN ALONG THE PURGATORY
 
She had pretty flowers in her hair
When she walked she moved all over
And she talked the talk she was all there
That`s Isabella I`m talk`n `bout
 
Big brown eyes and reddish blonde
That`s just how she looked
How she was was wistful want
A better life she said
 
"Gonna get me a big rich man",
"I aint never gonna let `im go",
"He`ll get kiss`n between his ears",
"We aint never go`n be po"
 
Life along the Purgatory with Isabella
Proved to be a trial
Liv`n with Isabella was too much for any fella
He kissed his horse goodbye and went to town
Never to be seen again
 
She never even cried a tear
This girl was a saint in harlot dress
With a lisp of paradise to come
See, Isabella knew no fear
 
The saint of the Purgatory
Envy of every man up and down the crick
Had picked a saint for her next man
HAHAHAHA---- she had picked Saint Nick

The Purgatory... I love the sense of crudeness in this poem and what it evokes for me. The roughness of your words (please do not take that in a negative manner) helps to fuel the characterisation of Isabella and creates this vivdid imagery.

my mother said it was just as easy to love a rich man as it was to love a po' one. A funny glimpse into feminine psychology, some do still hold out for love though. :)

LOL- She picked a generous guy. This was a lot of fun to read and quite clever.
