Charlotte Peters Rock

(20th century / England)

Carry The Banner


Managing doormat in rose-coloured glasses
shock of grey hair and a simpering smile

Snowy net curtains whose pattern surpasses
that of the neighbours she watches the while

Baby pink nightie - blue bows right across it
perfumed lapels and toilet-roll cosies

Tidiness fetish and cushions to cosset
Fluffy white teddie and roses in posies

Feminine vision in Mills `n' Boone manner
If Cartland keels over she'll carry the banner
