Cider and Rosie

Great Friends

Cider and Rosie where always together,

greatest of friends whatever the weather.


Rosie, you see was a girl on a mission,

High and dry but not in remission.


Giggling and wriggling her butt for the men

Cider gave her the buzz to play then.


Rosie was a real sad case, outed by the human race,

She looked around for the smallest of space,

to keep her men entertained and content,

Cider was their to aid her lament.


The men they walked by checking carefully

"Hey Rosie" they cried, give me your time freely

But Rosie was cute, and with the eye of a newt

she new this would not happen.


"Hey guys" she would say, "if you want this suite

which is tidy and neat, you have to give me a dollar

for the parking meter is already ticking,

and the landlady is starting to holla."


Cider and Rosie where never apart, because one didn't live without the other,

Rosie was smart and knew from the start, that those stilettos where her cover,

because with Cider and shoes she had heard the news,

that men liked her better.


So no clothing she wore, she knew the score,

of how to entertain her brother.

For whose life it would seem, was better than hers

he treated her like his lover.

Well you are witty and clever and I'm still rereading to see if I can get the double meaning. Sort of reminds me of the song "They all said Louise was not half bad. . ." You have the talent for poetry. Loved "cute, and with the eye of a newt."

Hi Genna, nice of you to visit, three times I am not surprised as having read this poem several times myself there are parts not so fluent. but I have left it alone and keep looking on it as a learning curve, but your comment was much appreciated and as ever encouraging.

Granny's House, Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me such a lovely comment.
