They say life is not like a soap opera --

those fables on TV of fantasy,

great wealth, excessive cheating, murder, and greed,

with lives that seem too ridicuously dramatic to ever be real.

And yet -

someone had to tell me

that my husband was caught with another woman

by his pregnant girlfriend

who doesn't know he's married to me

and not divorced.

Who says life isn't like a soap opera?  

(c) 1977 Nan C.
