Betty started a regular way, you see;
Then she took away the y, and added i e.
Queen of the Pinups, she was often called;
Men in the 50’s, were totally enthralled.
In school, voted ‘Most likely to Succeed’;
Caught the eye of every guy, indeed.
She had many titles, and a college education;
Influenced sexuality and fashion, in the nation.
With her jet-black hair, and beautiful blue eyes;
Made her own costumes, to show off her thighs.
Was chosen as Miss January, Playmate of the Month for 1955;
What a way to increase, a man’s sex drive.
Bettie is known, for many things;
Did wear many, wedding rings.
The 1st famous bondage model, she set the tone;
Madonna, Katy Perry, Dita von Teese, didn’t do it alone.
The Dark Angel, once attacked with a knife;
Went to court, and fought for her life.
In a Mental Hospital, she spent many years;
Schizophrenia, can cause many tears.
Miss Pinup of the World, she was voted;
The Queen of Curves, was often noted.
Ms. Monroe, had fame and a body that was hot;
Marilyn had a predecessor, Bettie did not.
What a dream, to be with Bettie Page;
In Heaven, I bet she’s all the rage.
My affection for Bettie, just won’t quit;
Oh to see her, in that leopard outfit.
Given a choice between Marilyn or Bettie, who to choose;
Either way, you wouldn’t lose.
My new dream, to date the pair;
To walk by, and watch the people stare.
Bettie Page, you are a Star;
May this poem find you, wherever you are.
I won’t hold my breath, to get a date;
But if chosen, I wouldn’t be late.
I wouldn’t act stupid, or be a dope;
I would bring my camera, and lots of rope.
You are so admired by millions, and more;
One of the prettiest Angels, for sure.
I wouldn’t ask you, to be my wife;
You might get mad, and pull your knife.
Enjoying life, I don’t hasten death;
But you’ll be on my mind, with my last breath.
I can’t wait to hear, “And coming to the stage”;
Your favorite Dark Angel, Ms. Bettie Page.
Really good! Bettie was a beautie!
