Salty cheese and a glass of wine

A different time

a different era

Where voluptuous curves were what artists wrote about

What the most glorious painters painted about

The round about curtsey of a respectable girl

who’s hair all acurl

Made even the most proper woman’s brow curl

A time of allure

Where femininity could endure

a lifetime of salty cheese and a glass of wine.

    This poem makes me think of those Skinny Girl alcohol commercials–I think women should boycott that stuff–the marketers out there try to ruin everything for women. We can’t even have a decent, regular cocktail now–we have to have a “skinny” one. Geez. Anyway…just ranting on related issues. Thanks!
