Seeking the Perfect Man, by Darrell Wright [*POEM*]

I knew a girl with countless fears
Who every day shed bitter tears,
And round and round the world she ran
While looking for the perfect man.

She said, “Like Jesus Christ I’ll be—
The Sinless One who pleases me!
Courtship is what I want, not dating:
I think I’ll put off love and mating.”

One day she thought she’d found her pearl,
But he was looking for a girl—
A rich patrician, young and fair—
A paragon beyond compare!

At forty-four  her search was done:
She found Him — and became a nun.

  1. I like it. Neat, crisp and stylishly presented. A change, too, from LK’s usual sentimental religiosity. A refreshing change, I may add.

  2. Hey, this is not bad. A poem with a story and a twist in the tail. Well done, Lucius, keep up the good work.

  3. Thank you, Doctor, but I must admit that Lasha deserves some of the credit for this as well as several other poems of mine for helping to polish them up and make them more poetically worthy of being on this site. And thank you, Lasha, for your generous editorial assistance!
