Bad Seed

I swore off the marry-go-round in ’92
– after three divorces, I’d had more than enough –
Robert never asked & that’s fine by me
– yet his love was mine to reap –

*

I was snockered on the living room floor
when tying the knot with the bad-ex #3
wed before a notary public girlfriend,
legal & binding & seriously foolish

I knew better but…
knowing the fruit was rotten, I ate it anyway
After the final beat-down, I knew it was time
to execute my exit plan

I typed my own divorce decree
& presented it in court
Bankruptcy was the last key to turn
– free at last to be the real me –
