Dear White Van Man
Dear Rugby Team
Dear Barman
Dear Bus Driver
Don’t tell me
You think I’m pretty,
Beautiful inside and out,
Gorgeous,
Sexy.
Keep your opinions to yourself
About my body
And how you like my legs
Or my breasts.
Keep your mouth shut
About how I remind you of Twiggy
Especially in that skirt,
And how you like the way my bra strap slips
Down my shoulder
Just
So.
Don’t tell me
You’ve never met anyone quite
Like me before,
Anyone quite as nice as me before.
Don’t tell me
You’d like to settle down
Someday
Marry me
Someday
Have me bear your children
Someday.

Someday
When you leave
I’ll wish you’d never told me
You think I’m pretty,
Beautiful inside and out,
Gorgeous,
Sexy.
So keep your opinions to yourself
