for MIDDLESBROUGH MAGIC SHIP 283 (A)

EASING INTO A CYCLIC WORLD-LIFE
The girl shall settle down -
to a life mostly mild -
with a guy she works near,
with him and his child.
So knows the messenger
who carries the gypsy's words.
As mad as March hares,
as wild as the birds
the girl shall think him
when he is to relate
that before she was born
he knew of her fate.
Her fate is to slip
into the shoes of another.
Her fate is to play
the role of a stepmother.
Her fate, yes her future,
is there on Easy Street.
Easy guy, easy child and home,
easy shoes upon her feet.
