Choices

 

Three identical triplets compete to find love

in a televised nation sitting side by side

under Jerry Springer’s thigh.

 

“We can paint the town red or any other color,” says Triplet one.

 

The second sucks in her cheeks like a china doll:

“If you’re looking to have a good time then look no further.”

 

But Jimmy, a shy Kentuckian with a white-outed past

feels a twitch in his groin when contestant number three

sporting the same black minidress as both of her sisters

struts across the stage to her seat.

 

“Most people think I’m a good girl

but that’s ‘cause I haven’t let them inside.”
