Rapunzel is revolting...

From henceforth...
things are changing...
I'm letting my hair down.




From this day forth...
I'm no longer plucking,
a fruitless exercise if ever there was one.
My chin will bristle,
my tash will tassel.

I'm never going to
kiss anyone on
both cheeks, ever again.
When did we decide we
had to do it anyway?
We're not frigging French...
we're British, stiff upper lip
and all that...
okay from now on my upper lip
will be extra stiff with a hemp
fringe, but no worries.

I'm certainly never ever going to say...

'Moi?'

Instead I will cry...

'Wot me mate?'

I'm revolting in all quarters
and not one of them French.

My strops will become more astropalyptic,
my pontificating more pointed,
my thoughts on all and sundry more honest.
Never having had a horse, I'm taking up
horse riding, with the sole purpose of
riding rough shod over all who need
it telling... like it is...
Well in my candid opinion, that is!

Look out world...
I want to get back on!

    1. Jean were you a char in a former life I idly wonder? Cos the 'Hello love' was so lovely, conquering visions of me being wrapped in a warm, freshly baked cake smelling, flowery pinny (armless and wrapping round type). It made my poor sore heart ease... thank you.

      High horse... of course!

  8. I am so glad you are back and firing on all cylinders! I am sorry but I do not agree with allowing the 'tash to grow willy nilly - I have nightmares about facial hair - especially long whiskers growing on my chiny chin chin. Jayne x

    1. You and me both kid. Some women probably think I'm a bit odd as I stare in fascination at their faces. Should I tell them is always my worry... bit like spinach in teeth or grolly on nose, one must I always find. Although facial hair is a no-no. Just one of life's great mysteries...

    Please be kind to old ladies, no scrutinising of our withered, hairy physogs. After all - we're on your side!
