I write what I feel…




She was a rich bitch
Fair-haired blue-eyed golden girl
Daddy’s pearl

He was working class
Bold as brass
Kiss my ass

Love strikes out of the blue
And it targeted those very two
Daddy roared NO NO NO
Mother said rather listen to your father

Then they called the preacher in
Sunday school teacher in
And since the boy was born in sin
His sanction was impossible
Absolutely impractical
So that’s the reason why
There they lie…

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Your poem tells quite a story with just a few words!


  2. def an intriguing story…born in sin is a hard line for me, arent we all? is it only because he was of a lower class as well…leaves me with questions….


  3. Pulls no punches this one, Denise.


  4. ooh la la! love this feisty little poem, Denise – & the ending seems… right, somehow 😉

    how we judge our fellow human beings!


  5. Why do I get the feeling that your tongue is firmly in your cheek, Denise?


  6. In spite of the deftly done lighter touches at times, I take this story seriously. The ‘holier than thou’ attitude, leading to tragedy.


  7. Social outcast meets society girl and together they face societal bigotry. A familiar tale and very well told.


  8. Absolutely brilliant in rhythm and content – really love this, AD
