Ms Ester Harding

Composed in choir, again, for a young and talented model and soprano.


My years of study of the fairer sex
Support the theory, terrible but true,
Each woman has a choice (for Nature checks):
Some brains, or else good looks, but not the two.
This law denies the smart ones sex appeal,
Effectively leaves models dull as drains;
Regardless of their wishes, that’s the deal,
However hard we wish, the law remains.
A tragic case, but what can mortals do?
Revile the heartless universe’s laws?
Desire or depth — which one is first for you?
I‘m sure the question gives all males pause.
No matter: one exists who breaks the mould.
Genius brained, yet flawless to behold.
