Being A Woman Poet


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.
    thanks for sharing. have you changed your name? (Report) Reply
