Sunday Muse -- A New Life


To Paris 

She'd paid dearly for this seat

Was a "people mover man"

who came to her small village 

He'd move one or ten--pay him 

She'd start a new life, who knows 

Who knows what life brings to her 

Cheese and wine, a new romance 

Failed her first, this good for her 

Terrible rut she was in 

Sold by her man to some scum 

Virtual slave, she was cooked 

Two nights ago she escaped 

Took his money paid her fare 

Now with France's shore in sight 

Train ticket in her hand bag 

Paris two hours ahead

She's been through the mill, perhaps it is time for her place in the sun. I enjoyed this poem, Jim.
