Barbara's Been A Bad Girl

Poem By Tom J. Mariani

Barbara's been a bad girl
Someone should have said
Then taken away her candy
And sent her straight to bed

Barbara grew up with people
Who would never scold
Who were always within reach
Without even being told

She starting meeting friends
Just to keep the blues away
Soom they moved in
And were there to stay

We never really knew little Barbara
When we met she'd already been sold
To friends who didn't care
She only wanted more and not to get old

Barbara had a bad time
Always trying to get more
For Barbara's friends came in bottles
From a prescription drug store

Barbara's been a bad girl
Someone shouold have said
Then taken away her pills
And pulled her out of bed

Sounds like a story thats been told a couple too many times-good write though the beginning is misleading and the conclusion is a surprise...very mysterious and suspensful.
