'When Joan was only one,
she already knew where she was going.
'Going right? Left?
'No - straight on. '
'When she was five she was writing,
"'Dear Father Christmas,
"'I don't want a doll,
and I don't want a big red ball.
"'What I want is a pair of silk stockings,
"'and I mean silk, not artificial. "'
'She was 12 before she got
her first silk stockings
'and they were artificial.
'See? All the other girls are waiting
for the bus.
'Look - here she comes,
straight for the milk van.
'Is she going to get a lift? She is. '
'At 18, she's a working girl
and still knows what she wants.
'A boy wants to take her to the movies,
twice a week, if she'll let him.
'She would rather dine at the best hotel
in town, even if it's only once a month.
'There she is, that tall, skinny girl.
'Will he take her? He will. '
'She's 25 now, and in one thing
'she still knows where she's going. '

Good evening, Lon.
