On Marriage (a poem)

As I was cleaning my bookshelf, I came across a poem I wrote when I was a sophomore in high school. Since it’s relevant, I thought I’d share it here.  I was so cute and spunky, was I not?

On Marriage
By Cedar Goslin

You can keep your bridal gown
Your snow white veil, too
They only make me frown
Keep your rings
Your wedding bands
And other fancy things
I will not catch your bouquet
Nor will I throw it
Unless to throw it away
do you hear that wedding bell?
It sounds like a death toll
Calling you to hell
No groom could ever suffice
Prince Charming is a bore
And castles aren’t so nice
While others mate for life
This bird flies solo
And can never be called “wife”
Mock me, I’ll only smile
It’s good to know there’s more to life
Than walking down the aisle
