Not Dainty! – A poem.

“You may call me dainty,

But I have news for you,

I don’t want to be seen as saintly

I’m not a doll for you to view.

I’m no demure and proper lady.

Who likes whistles and cat-calls

I’m not coy or shy, I like D.I.Y

Have you seen my overalls?

Don’t dare pigeon hole me,

In your prim and sexist way,

I’m not dainty, not at all, see!

And that’s all I’ve got to say.”

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
