    dotsDo as I say, not as I do.dots
    -------------------------------------------


    her name was kathy and she knew
    exactly how to treat her men.

    she loved her pappy, but never
    quite learnd how to say when.

    she made her money from married men
    who were never quite satisfied.

    the closest she'd ever get
    to a dance carreer in her life.


    she had a little girl at the
    tender age of seventeen.

    she named her lilly,
    and made sure that she'd always eat.

    lilly would reach up to the set on her breast, where the men stare less and less.

    until she bussed around on the street,
    and she said to lilly.


    "do as I say, not as I do
    do as I say not as I do,
    make sure you don't end up like me.

    do as I say, not as I do
    do as I say, not as I do,
    you were meant for more than your mother."


    they made it all of two weeks,
    in the fall of their homelessness.

    until she ended up in a truck
    with a man named rex.

    50 bucks and hour to make
    sure her little girl goes fed.

    it only costs her her thighs
    bleeding through her dread.



    the first thing that she bought
    was a little brown teddy bear.

    with a card that said
    "Dear daughter, I'll always be there."

    then she found a man
    who wants an escort to a bar.

    they found her two weeks
    later in the trunk of his car.

    with a bear and a card that read.


    "do as I say, not as I do
    do as I say not as I do,
    make sure you don't end up like me.

    do as I say, not as I do
    do as I say, not as I do,
    you were meant for more than your mother."

      I saw a few typos, but otherwise, this is probably one of the most beautiful poems i've ever read. I was close to tears reading the ending, it's terrible. Other than "carreer" and "50 bucks and hour", I think you meant an. Other than that, this was beautifully written.
