Dear Dr. Seldomright,
I am a girl. Some boys think I'm pretty,
but I don't want to be just another
pretty face. I want to amount to something.
Can I be both a mother and an actress?
Would they go together?
Sincerely, your fan,
Dr. Seldomright responds:
Gloria, don't hesitate !
Take drama lessons, find a mate
Each direction will enhance the other
The acting tricks that you will learn
will help you as mother to discern,
what should be subtle or emphatic,
assertive, or just plain dramatic
Not thrown by playing villian, sometimes saint,
you'll interpret what you know you ain't
As actress, your techniques will inspire,
your mother roles, till they acquire
acting tricks and schtics and stuff,
speaking strictly from the cuff
It will be fun to be an actress,
which you can blame if you're acting tactless,
even become an Oscar winner,
while as mother you're preparing dinner.
