I felt that yesterdays poem was crying out for a response, so here it is! You should read Too Much Thigh – Part 1 first
I did indeed witness you watching
me having fun with all the guys.
We were doing the Macarena,
not much time for wandering eyes.
Yes my skirts are somewhat short,
and rather smaller than before.
But I’ve got legs the length of Broadway
I’ll show them off
– I’m not a whore!
I work hard for this body,
it’s not perfect, but still it’s hot
I can handle the attention –
I’m 39, I’ve not forgot.
You came along when I was twenty,
Just the two of us from then.
So it’s rare for me to party
and get attention from the men.
This “weathered” face has some sadness,
I will agree – that’s very clear.
But it’s you love, that I’m sad for
because with you, there is no cheer!
I wish you were less self-conscious
and at times, let down your hair.
I can tell you from experience,
it’s more fun when you don’t care!
