Nevertheless, She Persisted

Nevertheless, she persisted
in taking up space
that everybody knew
did not belong to her
and they were all shocked to see it
and felt justified
when her persistence backfired

Nevertheless, she persisted
in using up air
which was entirely shocking
to all involved
and led to the formation
of a formidably
disapproving subcommittee

Nevertheless, she persisted
and so did others
until there was persistence everywhere
to the shock and dismay of decent folk
and everyone had to take baths
to wash the persistence away

Nevertheless, she persisted
as they shook their heads disapprovingly
not realising
how permanent
her persistence
