Three lean sisters, of uncertain age,
Lived in a house like a rusty cage.
Amanda embroidered, and fondled her cat,
And went to church in a plum-colored hat.
Theresa baked cookies, and kept a strong box
Of old indiscretions, and babies' locks.
Laura awoke when the house was still
And the moon was round as a quinine pill.
She bloodied her mouth, and gashed her face,
And rode a black hound to the trysting place.
