Just a rhyme about various lifestyles.

Three Girls

 

Amy, Katy, and Sally,

They were the best of friends;

But these  three girls were diff’rent,

And came to varied ends.

 

Amy, she lik’d her brandy,

And was a wild young thing;

Drinking too much, she play’d loose,

And wore no wedding ring.

 

Katy was a good mother,

With babies ev’ry year;

She nurs’d them all through childhood,

And wip’d away each tear.

 

Sally had a bright, full life,

The sheriff did she wed;

He kept her dress’d in fine clothes,

And they were both well fed.

An observation of life. Different paths present themselves, and we may choose them according to our personalities, likes and dislikes. Sometimes, we don't choose at all, but are swept there by a tide of circumstances. If only we all knew the one that was best.

Three friends who chose very different life styles. It made me think of my siblings, we have all chosen different pathways too. Different but much more independent. I enjoyed your poem, and it is fun observing behaviours in people. Hello Debbie, pleased to meet you.
