|| The First Miss ...|

On this day in nineteen nineteen
The first Miss America was seen
Crowned a miss before the world
And before the scandal unfurled
For the lady was not a "miss" at all ...
In fact, had a hubby and kids at school!
So began the rocky road of a pageant
Fit for the crown of beauty at a tangent
For so much has been required since
Including talent, poise, and elegance
Plus the ability to relate cohesively ...
Goals well beyond crumpets and tea
