Pious Miss Flow

When a pious young lady named Miss Flow
Said, “I hear that your morals are low!”.
I wiped away a tear
And said, “Flow, my dear,
Do you know your standing on my toe!”

Hot Apple Pie

When a gorgeous young lady named Sky
Offered me some very hot apple pie,
I said, “yes please”.
But she did tease.
So instead I got some hot Sky!”

When My Girlfriend, the Beautiful Miss Lou

When my girlfriend, the beautiful Miss Lou
Said, “there’s a wicked side to you!”.
Our housemate Miss White
Turned out the light,
And said, “may I join you 2?”

A Mare’s Deep Scar

A mare’s deep scar
On her youthful hide.
She has gone far
With many a horse.

Of course, a sensitive horse
Senses the scars inside.
But he has his need.
And mares must feed.

A Young Lady with Plenty of Money

A young lady with plenty of money
Calls me her sweet and her honey.
Her name it is Jane
And she’s so very plain.
But, dear reader, she’s loaded with money …!

When a Young Lady Sitting On a Box

When a young lady sitting on a box
Said, “sir, you are a sly old fox!”
I replied, “dear Lin
I’ve committed no sin.
It’s his lordship whose been wearing your frocks!”

Vice

I make tea
While she
Takes a shower.
I know
In an hour
Or so
She will go.

She smokes a cigarette
At my open window.
I regret
The cigarette.
But women and wine,
Are they not divine?

(Note, “Women and Wine” is a thread running through the poetry of Ernest Christopher Dowson).

When a Young Lady Who Comes From Burton

When a young lady who comes from Burton
Came round and swung from my bedroom curtain,
And I said, “don’t fall!”
My cynical old friend Paul
Said, “she fell long ago swinging in Burton!”
