A Poem by Alex Falkner

 

 

I don't wear make up and skirts, high heels or any pearls,

I don't get dressed up pretty like all the other girls.

I don't have jewels and handbags, fancy bras and other s**t,

I really just don't see the point,

I got no bloody tits.

(honest, I don't, but that's not the point)

My shirts are old, my jeans are torn,

Been like that since John was born.

I don't have a flash house,

I don't have a flash car,

To the outside, it doesn't look like I've got far.

So much further from the truth I say,

Couldn't ask for more than what I've got.

You're full of s**t, we don't believe you,

You're skint, you're broke, you're poor.

To those with these mocking words,

Who think they've got the lot.

With a smile written upon my face,

I say, no, I'm really not.

Lol, I love the quirky way you write things :) and you're 100% right, you don't need fancy things or a lot of things in your life to make you happy ... as long as you have the right things that you need, that's all the matters :) I didn't have a lot as a kid growing up, but my Mum always made sure we knew we were loved and I appreciate things a lot more than some of the friends I used to have, I don't take things for granted either.

Props to you for this poem :)

You have love in your life...what more could anyone ask for??
You have your wonderful man, and your beautiful son...and, of course, Beau. And you are happy with who you are.
Like you, I am poor...but I am happy with who I am. That is something that money cannot buy...

Nice one, clever criticism for fake appearances and empty hearts....good use of revenge through sarcasm and words...
But although this world is full of hatred and injustice, there is still beauty and peace in it somewhere.
Best wishes for love and peace:)

This is really not bad. You have a rough, hard-edged voice which works very well with your topic matter. I think the very last line is perhaps the best one. Well done.

Thank you. :)
I enjoyed writing this one.
I really like the rhythm of your piece, and personally, rhyme is my favorite (and I think most challenging) connotation. I also enjoyed its more positive overall mood, and the subtle humor.

Nice! That was funny! I do not wear skirts too (my cutesy gothic days are long gone.) Now, I wear combat boots, ripped jeans, and a leather jacket. I know, I dress from the wrong era. And I do NOT wear skinny jeans; that's just sick, just saying because sometimes people assume that I do. Wealth can be measured in other ways, too, not just through money.

You make me laugh, Tamm.
