The Baggage Shipment
Crossing the mighty ocean wide
Flinty, determined soul was she
Longing to be Sugar Daddy's bride.
In her homeland, none could see
Any good qualities that be
Maybe if there was a dowry
A marriage could have been arranged
He did not know there was a bounty
Nor that his bride was quite deranged
And all his money to be exchanged
His bride was on the passenger ship
Her baggage aboard Lockheed C-5 Galaxy
That should have been a signal ~relationship snip
The wedding over, destruction casually
set in, his funds transferred rampantly
*This is about a woman who was poor and thought only of money and self. A Lockheed C-5 Galaxy is a military cargo carrier which can transport 118 tons of equipment therefore a whole lot of emotional baggage.
