To A Visiting Poet - Poem by Della Perry

Dear Poet,
We really enjoyed you reading out your poems
Especially the funny ones about our stupid teachers
And the way you poked fun at them
Especially that Mrs Perry wannabe poet woman!
I just wondered, I'm not being rude,
But why are your legs so hairy?
I had to sit right by your legs
I couldn't help but notice
I was thinking, Miss, that because writing poems
Is probably a mans job, that you stopped shaving them to look like one.
They were all squashed beneath your tights like wriggly worms
How about that for a simile?
I'm not being rude, but I also noticed when you were reciting
your wonderful poems that you had a mustache!
It must be hard being a lady poet!
P.S Your poems were fab!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

We had a visiting poet, a lady who I can't remember, we also met Ian McMillan once who was pretty cool, he inspired me never mind the kids! He signed my book 'The best poet in my house, ' He hasn't even been in my house!
