Ms. Matron wears a stained glass bell jar skirt.
And, a starched, white, good Christian woman shirt.
If her Venus screams deep beneath that glass,
she gets twice as cruel till the screaming's passed.
Her beloved left her - that's what I heard.
Me and Rhonda, we wear old prison shirts.
Short of cash, we put a man in the dirt.
After a hot pursuit that didn't last
but half as long as wild women are worth;
Ms. Matron wears a bell jar skirt.
Of all the ways a girl can cloak her hurts,
I've done some bad, but never done the worst.
Through most every lens, I'm nothing but trash.
But, I ain't become my pain under glass
like Matron in her bell jar skirt.
Note: a bell jar is a piece of scientific equipment that can be used to create a vacuum. When a vacuum is created, sound cannot travel and is muffled.
