A vapid girl
In college
If she only knew,
how scrumptious
life really could be.

Across her chest,
Z-E-T-A,
Sixth letter of the Greek alphabet,
Sixth house on the row of mansions.
The only thing
She knows,
A materialistic sisterhood.

She wears sapphire necklaces
As if they’re vital,
To her survival.
Although she avoids Thursday night’s dinner
Ravioli and mushrooms (Her favorite),
because she thinks that if a plate
was in front of her,
the sisters would talk about,
how much she ate.


Every day the girl avoids
walking into,
the extravagant dining room
with the biggest
crystal chandelier
of all the sororities.

She avoids dinner
in front of the girls of Zeta,
and she keeps from stepping foot
on the scarlet red carpet,
of the dining room,
which contains the large cherry wood table,
of sixty place settings.
She is the only sister
not there for dinner,
Every night,
her chair is always vacant.
