Angel Hair and Candyfloss

Updated on March 24, 2011


Red and yellow and pink and green, colours of the rainbow it would seem.

Orange and purple and blue, now these are the colours that look bold on you.

Feather duster in your hand, and with a determined sweep of your hair, 

ready to do battle with those cobwebs resting up there,

nestling in the corners so dark,no surrender from your cold heart.

Fateful meeting this morning they say, that poor spider got in the way,

of a woman on a mission, with so much to prove,

that she has to wear the trousers so smooth, that no one can tell if bumps do appear

as she holds her woman close,  and so near.

Gay is a term many would use, cruel in such light of feminine clues.

You see Jane is the woman in this partnership, the love of her life is called Dick.

Now Dick by nature is all woman too, but in her relationship she always knew

that life as a girl was a big mistake, but the greatness of men she could not shake

so still restless in the body she was given, she decided to live her life as a woman.

So Jane and Dick are woman and wife, they live together in everyday plight

as to who uses the duster today, does it really matter to mankind any way?

Now they have made their bed and lay on it nightly,

and would like to tell you very politely,

that woman do not need a man to conquer the world or share a plan

as to where you lay your hat, or to which side you wish to bat.

Angel hair and cadyfloss sounds so sweet, but make no mistake 

Jane and Dick may not have balls, but they have pride and joy and love

which conquers all.

      Hi Alexander thank you for stopping by and taking the trouble to leave a comment. I am always very grateful for help and so pleased you liked the poem. Guess I should let my partner read these comments lol

      Hi Sally, how are you hunnie? thank you for the compliment, you know me and poetry are only just getting to know each other. I am starting to enjoy the challenge, but still a little afraid of the words if you know what I mean. God bless x

      Well Sir Frog, a compliment indeed. Thank you so very much for your comment. My other half read this hub yesterday and his comment "Rubbish, and the photo's don't even fit." But with such great writers on Hub Pages I am prepared for a few knock backs if it will improve my prose lol

      Beautiful! Love the colors at the beginning . . . and then the images. Great job! I agree -- men -- often overrated.

      Keep up the good work. Excellent points made in the poem. A woman doesn't always need a man to be the center of her world.

      Hi Peg thank you so much for stopping by. I only had the first two lines in my head when I started this poem, and it strangely turned into something I had no intention of writing. As I am still trying my hand at poetry I decided to publish it anyway. It's all experience lol

      This poem is deep, blue. There are so many variations of prejudice and judgment on things, people so quick to throw the first stone. When love is really all we need. What the world needs now, is love, sweet love.

      I think Jane and Dick do have Balls...they are able to speak their minds and show how they feel for one another. Good one Bluestar.
