Midnight Prostitute - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

There she goes again
Flagging me down in the rain
Yes, she is cute

Midnight prostitute
Roaming the red light district
With conventions of her own so strict

A tenner for an ice cream
Fifty for a lay
A hundred for the day

She is a woman of the streets
A working class brain
In the sunlight she cleanses her stains

I beg of you no condemnation
I beg of you no disrespect
You and I are not even near perfect

There she goes again
Midnight Prostitute
A tenner for an ice cream
Fifty for a lay
A hundred for the day
Marriage for the year
I fear!
