My Favourite Wartime Aunt
larrylark

Sat demure,
 1
pretending to be insecure.
 2
Tweed skirted,hem on knee,
 3
string of costume jewellery
 4
no couture.
 5
 
 
 
 
Smooth gravy browned legs,
 6
platform shoes. Hair V for victory
 7
rolled,curled,pinned,where
 8
it falls, at nape of neck, turban
 9
that longed for fake lustre
 10
of a Hollywood pearl.
 11
 
 
 
 
Searching blacked out nights
 12
for the right airman with anchor
 13
arm charms,or a cool G.I.
 14
faintly scarred  A bluebird in clover
 15
while misty skies whitened over Dover,
 16
dance band stuck up a tune,under
 17
a moon in June-"Begin the Begine,"
 18
wearing shiny knickers of crepe de chine.
 19
 
 
Its truly amazing how some men paid
 20
to be put in pain.  How you adored
 21
their grovelling across the floor. O.K.
 22
Auntie,you can put away the lash
 23
while i go and cash your pension.

Hi Trochee,

I think it pays to be a little observant in a world where the one eyed man is king.
