A Marie Antoinette poem- definitely Halloween type

anntn6b(z6b TN)October 31, 2006

From the Page Six gossip column in the NY Daily News

"IN the mail yesterday, we received a little box with the image of a guillotine on the cover.

Inside were two pictures of Marie Antoinette - one with head, the other without - plus a little poem by Laren Stover, the brilliant author of "The Bombshell Manuel of Style" and "Bohemian Manifesto."


"A Minuet with Antoinette,"

it goes, in part:

"I've lost my diamond necklace

And 600 pairs of shoes

I've lost a thousand orange trees

And beguiling garden views . . .

I've lost my hall of mirrors

And its crystalline reflection

I've lost my Swedish diplomat

Who swore to me protection

I've lost my husband and my king

Who shared my marriage bed

It's Halloween, I'd like to scream

But it seems I've lost my -." "
