She dressed to nines, and, quite genteel,
Our lady was no clown.
In satin gown,
She strolled the town,
A woman of renown.
In grandest style,
She’d wink and smile;
You’d never see her frown.
She loved the men
And had a yen
To charm them upside down.
She slipped and fell upon a peel;
Her legs flew in the air.
Upon a dare,
A few did stare
At views beyond compare.
A howl and whoop,
A lady in despair…
Was her sad plight;
Her bottom was quite bare.
The last I’d heard, she’d lost her zeal
For dressing to the nines.
The latest signs
In her designs
Seem set on trouser lines,
But I’m amazed
She wasn’t fazed
How underwear combines
To cover that
Of which men chat
and sunlight never shines.
| Friggen hilarious, you've really perked up my day. You've got style. |
Christmas wishes x

Is this based on a true story or just something you made up? Either way, great job putting it into poetry form. While reading it, I felt like I was there.|
Bottom line (no pun intended) great job! I like the comedy of it, you don't read many poems like that anymore. Keep up the good work, I hope to read more great poems from you in the future!

I wish I had been there to help her regain her footing and her composure; and, I wouldn't have gawked at her bare bottom (like hell, I wouldn't)! You've been on a roll Sharon, and this was delightful in it's amusing and entertaining story! ||| Posted on 2007-08-11 00:00:00 | by Ron Cole | [ Reply to This ] || hahahaha i can relate but i'm not saying a word about it...this is funny Sharon you sure have alot of different thoughts coming out of you |
The only thing i would do if this belonged to me is put a word here
its in your first line of your first stanza...
She dressed to nines, and, quite genteel
