Scholarship Girl

Glance at her clothes
like her hair
Scholarship girl
among the monied.
Doesn’t drive a BMW
or Mercedes.
Doesn’t drive. Period.
Funny, nice doesn’t cut it
with rich Catholic girls
or boys who know
Mother wouldn’t approve:
"She has no connections!"
She tells herself she
Just studies, reads, and writes.
One day soon, she thinks
one day soon.

  1. Enjoyed this piece, Sascha. I don’t know what her plans are. Some people just study because they think it will bring them the world, but it rarely does does … It is only ever wealth and power. I hope she is planning a bank robbery.
