Sovereign Girl … 1905 - 2k13 - Poem by saadat tahir

Kicked on beach cockle shells
then the office guys to hell

the prickly sand tickles my toes
and his laughter, that he knows

the bosses work I so often do
why I like him, don’t have a clue

late to bed and early to rise
nets me bonus, worldly prize

with the alarm, shoot out of bed
fumble and clamp its button dead

thirty minutes of a race in time
switch on tube to scan the crime

hair and hands tomorrow then
laptop purse and favorite pen

at the bus stop same old scene
a million times I must have seen

I hate their frills and lacy girls
The dumb pouts and their curls

What’s up beat in a gender trap
All they need is a firmly slap

Daunted not by brawn or hurl
Brainy and brash is sovereign girl

    I think it's an ode to a girl who is self-assertive and smart and does not like to act coyly. It's written with a feeling of respect for all working girls to keep their morale high. A perfect ten for such a serious at the bottom but written with a light pen composition. (Report) Reply
