The Acrobat

When she was young
and newly married
she bent over backward
to reach
her husband's goals
And when her babies
were just children
she did handsprings
to get
her husband's attention
When her husband threatened
to leave her
she did cartwheels
to keep him
She never seemed to realize
that she
was somersaulting
through
her life
