Preggerz, A Sonnet

By Clara Perlmutter

The other day I read on TMZ

That Kylie Jenner’s gonna be a mom

You can’t accept just anything you read

But this one I believed with much aplomb


For ratings will go up to reach the moon

We all will want to watch her stomach grow

And when the child is born we all will croon

But then we’ll go back to the status quo


Kylie will return to living large

While Baby will be snoozing back at home

It’s like her pets, they’re someone else’s charge

They’re props sometimes, though, shiny, silver chrome


When young, poor girls get pregnant they are shamed

But Kylie’s kid will only bring her fame
