The Ladies- a poem

The Ladies

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Elaborate slurs of feline curves

and jealous spite aspersions,

abound in spades of brash tirades,

inside the women’s washroom.


Whispers slight and words so trite

offending accusations,

of innocents in stiletto heals,

lipstick red and acid peals.


Snide remarks and shallow barks

denouncing men and favours,

of sexual marks in backs of cars

with unrestraint in labour.


Silence bares and lipstick cares,

a brush and quiet refreshment.

A line of coke, a gasp, a smoke,

and back onto the dance floor.


Replacements come, a parade of glum,

sad and lonely sirens,

there to snag a manly stag

and flaunt their womanly wiles.


Until the rays of dawn invite

a day of secretarial plight.

And waste away the daylight hours,

till neons bruise the night.


And once again in washrooms men,

unbeknownst and ignorant them,

the targets of these princess fems,

the prowlers of the night.


Do puff and preen with sex and glee

and vixen fight for honours.

In backs of cars, in lanes and bars

enacting, fill their coffers.

I was submerged in this world over the weekend. I was especially curious at their manipulation of men for seats and libations. I'd rather just by my own drinks, thank you.

You describe the phenomenon so much better than I. All I could come up with was, "what a bunch of freaky people" whilst shaking my head.

Great poem!
