Good Looks And Personality

Professor, therapist, author and poet.

Good looks and personality can often open a door.
But once inside you must perform with a solid inner core.

Charm and grace may be seductive even if quite tenuous.
Dissipation quickly occurs when it's disingenuous.

Superior intelligence can manifest in great wit.
Discriminating acumen must pragmatic matters fit.

Mister and Miss America are competitive events.
Muscles and curvaceous figure are merely starting accents.

Relationships of importance require sincerity.
The high-maintenance show pieces have little utility.

Employment opportunities need skill and competence.
Superficial demonstrations are no more than ambiance.

In the finale analysis character takes central place.
Satisfactory interaction demands this primary base.
