Music: The Bad Girl's Lament.
Sequenced by Barry Taylor.

Glenda gives far more than she receives;
Losses swell, like lakes from dammed-up streams.
Even she deserves life's deeper pleasures:
Nights of love, days with those she treasures ...
Despite some setbacks, Glenda has her dreams--
A time for which she longs, and hopes, and grieves.
