The lady with the most unkempt hair
Did you just brush off layers
from those medallions up there?
I’m talking to you….
My lady…with the most unkempt hair.
Can you put aside
your ladle for a little while
and lend me an ear…
A stolen moment…
What? Don’t tell me now
that the maid is already there!
I hope you read through
your citations too!
How long have they been up there?
I guess, a year or two…
Fifteen years! Is that what you said?
Oh, yes! I do hear the doorbell ring
But I need to know
how a dancer clipped her wings??
Let the boss’s mail rest in the box a while
And put aside your chat box
It’s only vile
You can let the curry be
Just sit down and answer me…
Oh! The grocery can do alright
But those honours up there
Hope they’re within your sight
Even if you didn’t do the laundry
I’d know you care…
O my beautiful one with the most unkempt hair…
I know the bills must be paid
Home works finished
and dinners made.
I know the piles
of those office files
and phone bells and lullabies. …
Those prizes will gather some dust again
But before you mop your laurels up there
Be sure you know
what’s tougher dear
To win a dime
or wipe off the grime.
Don’t turn off the lights,
Lend me an ear
O lady with the most unkempt hair!!!
