Not That I Care (Sonnet for Sara)
Failed relationships often intrigue me,
None more so than Sara Trevor Teasdale;
Lack of success not all it seems to be;
Slide is always dependent, on the scale.
It seemed she had it all, with The Lindsay;
Courtesan and a bad boy, he enthralled;
At each turn, both went a separate way;
Mutual sabotage result: they stalled.
Delving deeper, it is her side I choose.
She clung to peace as, opposed to his war.
Don't pick a fight you are destined to lose,
Don't choose a lunatic as a mentor.
Just my personal thoughts, from here to there;
Random observations... not that I care.
Michael Todd (2013)
