WHAT?

When Mae West said:
“Too much of a good thing is wonderful” —
what did she have in mind?

I know that the 129 year old woman
who lives in Russia
and was recently brought into fame
because of her amazing longevity
did not say or even think that.

She said “Every day’s a drag!

It may be that there are “drag days”.

It must be so
because of the increasing suicide rate.

But most of the people I know
would prefer to be with Mae West.

I wonder what happened to her?
Truth is I don’t remember
or perhaps I just don’t know.
