Random Poem:

Domestic Desire

I’m watching the man
sizing up the girl
in the skirt
holding the child
observing him flirt
The curve of her hips
the shape of her legs.
He licks his lips.
They're driving him wild.
She's out of his league.
Way off by a mile.
He's but a rogue.
That girl there's got style.
So he sighs
and goes home.
His bathroom's just been
freshly retiled.
