Guest Prose: Robert Perry

The Fickle Mistress


Fortune is a Fickle Mistress

She treats us and then she whips us

It doesn’t matter if you misbehave


But we shouldn’t let her vex us

That fussy and Fickle Mistress

Because I know we’ll always be her slave

  1. I like how you did the bolding on this one. Well done!


  2. Kaden Brown Says:

    Yeah, I thought that it sort of adds another dimension – like another message – to the poem. Not sure what… I haven’t thought that much about it 🙂
