She saw the world in black and white
Creating clothes that fit, not fight,
The LBD and No 5,
Classy and fabulous, still survive.
She saw the world in shades of Gray
Designing structures in a way
That even to this day reveal
A forward thinking zest and zeal.
These women who have made their mark
Have not been hidden in the dark.
So bob your hair, and take a bow,
But do not make a marriage vow!

No matter how you toil and try,
The Revenue will bleed you dry.
But do not sigh nor do not seethe
For they may tax the air you breathe.

It was the great financial farce,
Picking numbers from their arse.
Should we send them to the blocks,
Or just invest their heads in stocks?

I tip the keys to open wide
The latent work of art inside.
But letter locked I’m left to think,
I have the will but not the ink!

I know that you expect from me,
A silly verse that sounds naughty.
But dirty thoughts I now must end…
…except when out with filthy friends!

(In fond memory of Maria)
No botox for me, not a tuck nor a nip,
While you get replacements, I stay lookin hip.
So catch that jive, on a prayer and a wing,
Cause heaven will rock when I teach it to swing!

What would I say if you should ask,
Who is the one behind the mask?
I would reveal that I am free
To hide my own identity!

It happens as a general rule,
In every pack, one finds a fool.
Experience in life will show,
Who knows the least will loudest crow.

They say I’ll never be scribe,
Because my words just jest and jibe.
But spare me the monotony
Of deadly earnest poetry!

I’m tithed and taxed, and yet they knife
The earnings from my working life.
I pay my dues, but must concede
That there is nothing left to bleed.
