Being A Woman Poet - Poem by Allan James Saywell

Lately I've been ridden with guilt
Not so long ago, well since the transition
Well since the operation
Well I used to wake up and give it a scratch
But now I lay in bed stretching
This way and that, preening myself
Now when I go down to the shops
I sway when i walk, I pout
Especially when my lippy goes on
Being a woman poet hasn't been easy you know
There has been a price
I'll catch you later darlings

    hmm? is this saying what i think it is saying? interesting, and yet i suppose their are some other newly-found female poets who could write a similar poem...........but perhaps not so well. i'd guess lippy is some australian word...lipstick? i could look it up but i'm too lazy. my wife and i just watched a travelogue on australia. we did not know darwin was bombed by the japanese in 1942, but we did know about the settlement of british convicts.
