KAREN


Karen Tomlinson was her name,
She looked just like her daughter,

I asked for aspirin one time and
She said, "You really oughtta

Take TYLENOL," that's something else
Spelled backwards, I perceived it,

That headache soon was gone, I guess
The LONELYT relieved it,

Myrtle Beach, she always mentioned,
Where someone could run free,

But I prefer to stay away
From hurricane country,

She left us with the memory
Of her quick smile and eyes

That sparkled like the million stars
Which fill the midnight skies.
