Privileged’s Saga

Silver spoons

silver toys

doting nanny

childhood’s decoy

 

exotic orchid

blue veined

hothouse life

rosy panes

 

unworldly perspective

imperfect warped

conditioned doll

primed for a fall

 

red carpeted debutante ball

Daddy’s gal went for a fall

landing in arms of stranger tall

a charming rake on the make

 

storybook defiance

foolish alliance, severed kin

inheritance as she faced, bereft

love’s downfall when rake up n left

 

reality’s cold water douche

broke sleeping beauty’s thrall

gathering somnolent wits, decided

To show world, make own destiny

 

Taking stock of own true worth

Beauty, brains, slim wherewithal

pawned valuable baubles to finance

Own upper drawer finishing school

 

Chance encounter with an old friend

rescued from last straw, broken back

couple of rough diamonds came inside

determined beauty optimistically  began

 

molding shaping chiding cajoling

scolding then weepy in arms folding

gradually rough diamonds took shape

their shiny patinas readied for display

 

Her witty creative mind scripted

A topical socio-comical stage play

To showcase finished “products”

In best possible flattering way

 

Carefully cultivated, chosen guests

Trooped in for an eclectic evening

Choice hors d’oeuvres and wine

Prepping for unusual evening fine

 

Graceful moves perfect pirouettes

Honed mannerisms voice delivery

Comical timing and witty repartee

Had audience frequently in stitches

 

Play was a hit as was finishing school

The privileged fallen from grace lady

Had arrived by dint of own grit, pride

Showing fate she could call own shots

 

Grieving parents aging grandparents

Finally came around and bore her home

She basked in their love revisiting past

Then left for home n bed of own making
