To A Visiting Poet - Poem by Della Perry
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!
