It looked so great in the store,

the Cashmere sweater,  snug and trendy on the mannequin 

now looks frumpy and gross on me 


My three month old Fiat,

drove so sleek and fast,  at first

now sits at the garage waiting for parts they don't have 


It is so frustrating to pick out something you really love,

only to take it home and find it wanting


Sadly, Michael was the same

smart and charming,   chiseled good looks and yet


He grew boring so quickly

and so much back hair- really unexpected


Fortunately I keep plenty of Strychnine on hand

that is a product that never disappoints
