But Did She Take Their Souls? 1993 2000

        But Did She Take Their Souls? 

When she divorced she left the money.

Never took a thing each time.

A question nags because a question

Picks away ad nauseum:

Did she take their souls?

There was Bob and Rob and Jim,

Did she have to wed each him?

Eve her friend, who says bright things

Offered this advice on wings:

Never be a bride again!

Though you fall in love with one,

Two, three or ten.

Be a lover, be a pal –

Give up being femme fatale.

It is wear and tear, this path to wisdom –

Full of pain and martyrdom;

One may leave with noble goals

But don’t you always take their souls?
