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.”
