    hard voiced ladies

    the hard voiced ladies
    laugh
    pour beer
    match quarters for the jukebox
    softly sing their favorite
    sad song,
    as they waltz around the tables.
    when the neon lights have died
    they become soft
    count their tips
    try to help their kids
    with the new math
    and never complain.

    Some time the cards you dare delt in life are not always fair but for family you do what has to be done . Love the poem Marie

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
