摘抄小詩兩首。

Bloody Men

Bloody men are like bloody buses-
You wait for about a year
And as soon as one approaches your stop
Two or three others appear.

You look at them flashing their indicators,
Offering you a ride.
You're trying to read the destinations,
You haven't much time to decide.

If you make a mistake, there is no turning back.
Jump off, and you'll stand there and gaze
While the cars and the taxis and lorries go by
And the minutes, the hours, the days.

Advice to Young Women

When you're a spinster of forty,
Your're reduced to considering bids
From husbands inclinded to be naughty
And divorces obsessed with their kids.

So perhaps you should wed in a hurry,
But that has its drawbacks as well.
The answer? There's no need to worry -
Whatever you do, life is hell.
