The Black RussianbyLadynStFreknBed©
"Call me Madam," scolds the social-hearted
Skirvin turned Mesta. Widow at young age-
wealthy husband, millionaire departed.
Famous hostess fought for woman's suffrage
With her, "hostess with the mostes" started
Her greatest joy were the parties she'd stage
This Ambassador and politician
was inspiration for the Black Russian.
