Painting the Town


Nothing becomes you quite like your strutting.

You're determined to go out in style.

Not for you the drab greys and browns

that dowse my canvas.

Your choice of palette is shocking pink and ruby red

upending the head nodders, 

the tut- tutters, the chin-waggers-

"She couldn't be!" I hear them say.

But inside you are

and nobody can say when...

So meanwhile, woman,

keep doing what you're doing

and paint the town red.
