This one is entering her teens,  
Ripe for sentimental scenes,  
Has picked a gangling unripe male,  
Sees herself in a bridal veil,  
Presses lips and tosses head,  
Declares she’s not too young to wed,  
Informs you pertly you forget  
Romeo and Juliet.  
Do not argue, do not shout;  
Remind her how that one turned out.
