HOW ABOUT A “GUESS WHO”:
There was a young lady named Dixie,
A school marr, she'll answer your query.
Who thought it was proper
To flit here and yon
In search of the pleasures she craved.
She would smile at the boys, and then after
She’d caused pain to many, and laughter
Turned t<j tears, she’d remember
What might be beyond
And quickly decides to behave.
