WHIRLING DERBISH

She is a whirling derbish
‘cause she was in the serbice
which really makes me nerbous
Glad she isn’t a vitch!!!

Actually, you prompted me to revise the poem (Round One)… When I wrote it, I was trying to show a contrast between Ben and myself, but it was too lopsided. The poem made me look like a whirling derbish or Maria in “The Sound of Music”. It made Ben look like an eternal pessimist. You didn’t misunderstand… my message was not clear enough… If you can find it, check out the revision (Round Two).
