Past and Future- arlene s bice

Recently another lost city was found

outside the Valley of the Kings in Egypt,

a city where lived mothers seeking marriage

for their daughters 3,000 years ago

just like in Jane Austen’s time 200 years ago

was there a story of marriage in Star Trek

or Star Wars or only spaceships beamed up

seeking places to inhabit, avoiding destruction

nowadays daughters make their decisions,

ignoring marriage if they prefer to live

life on their own without dismay.
