"...Montgomery’s excited about her hot date..."
Rosanna Montgomery is hungry for work,
So she looks on an internet site for a job;
She might be a receptionist or sales clerk,
Just to stay even – she’s not quite a snob.

Rosanna's dining at a restaurant –
Her waitress takes her order and makes a slip.
She doesn’t get quite the service she’d want,
So to stay even, she doesn’t leave a tip.

Snacks have been looking awfully yummy,
Causing Rosanna to gain a few pounds,
So to evenly hide her robust tummy,
She walks a treadmill for a couple of rounds.

Montgomery’s excited about her hot date –
So she jumps in the shower to wash herself clean.
Dressing real sexy – a nine, not an eight –
Knowing she’ll kiss him should one of them lean!

Love’s hidden power leaves nothing to doubt –
To stay roughly even, you need an accomplice…
But material nonsense, she could go without,
Though she could use some work and some service.

Rosanna Montgomery expects living is not
Worth endlessly stressing or naming some name…
Love is delivered, an arrow that’s shot –
Getting even with Cupid’s the entire game!
