I write what I feel…

Window Dressing (a Rap Poem)



Spin and leap

High in the air

Try to catch

What isn’t there

Windows covered

With drapes and blinds

Who can guess

What hides behind

A perfect scene

Try not to scream

Making up

Waking up

From a dream

Spider lashes

On her cheek

Lips silly-coned

She cannot speak

And (s)he, and he

With coiffured hair

Blows his TRUMPet

For all to hear

A plastic life

In a paper book

A fairy tale

Which some believe

And try so hard

To achieve

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. hard to live up to a fairy tale…or live in one…better to wake up to reality and make the most of it and what you have received….


  2. Wrong fairy tale, perhaps. The one you describe so well is based on artificiality. I like aspiring to one of the really jolly ones.


  3. Full of life and fun. 🙂


  4. Thanks, Ben. That is what I had in mind when writing it. 😀
