A Sad Story of Life

From The Birmingham Age Herald, January 13, 1915.

A member of the chorus
    Who visited a seer
Was told that in six months she would
    Be married to a peer.

Such talk should be discounted,
    It leads young girls astray;
This maiden bought a lot of things
    For which she could not pay.

And when she’d hoped to marry
    Her luck was very poor,
For she was doing one-night stands
    She’d never done before.

And no one said, “My lady,
    His lordship waits below.”
Instead she warbled ragtime songs
    And critics panned the show.
