Vacancy here

A Poem by Lyn Anderson
"

some thoughts that if you think they're you you're probably wrong and that says more about you than me

"

Poor petty princess pitter pat

Couldn't make up her pretty mind

 

Persistently penning perfect poetry

Passionately poo-pooing pertinent port-ants

Patiently proferred by patented poets ...



In her infinite wisdom the princess


made sure the peasants in her realm


knew exactly how to breathe.


 


Tho the body of them had been breathing


without difficulty in the years preceding


her entry into the world,


they all sighed,


and agreed her way


was best …



Thot

She's such a

T-what?

 

Tuck in that waist,

Pucker that face,

Produce the perfect selfie

Look at me, no, look at me ...

Between her navel gazing

And champeen fat girl hazing

You'll find her lot,

Devoid of Tho(ugh)t.

not at all, my pleasure..
this was like linguistics gymnastics :)
clever, and I love
and i'm not opposed to selfies but don't agree with fat shaming or hazing of course
but 'thot' is new to me and all I can say is if a woman wants to be a thot, then let her be a thot
the question mark in that phrase makes me wonder if it was poking fun at a double standard

Oh thank you. I just loved that word when I read it
I had to look up thot too. Same as hoe. I knew that because my grandkids speak about hoes. Plural of thot is thotties which made me think of totties and led me back to your princesses. We don't do princesses in my household :) I gave up on prince's some time ago. Look where you took me :)

also looked up thot.... and it made me wonder what the relationship is between self absorption and a thot... and then I re-read your poem Lyn and got my answer... and got it emersed in the words and style of your writing... nicely done Lyn...

seems like, looking at your style of writing, you had at least 3 thoughts on thots... lol...
Phew, I have never been called a princess, but I have it narrowed down to 28 possibles.
Poetry, just like real life, has too many prince/princesses, who regale us with how utterly delightful there lives are, who tend to be the saddest, loneliest people, with nothing but a fantasy lifestyle to strive to. If they haven't got it, it must be useless types who never quite realise how thin their veneer of respectability is.
I was just saying that very thing to my astronaut buddies, before we stole the shuttle and gatecrashed some chinese moon party :)
