Is it just me? Or do you agree? That the most disagreeable thing that can be Is being perved on by ugly old men. Is it just them? As they cough up the phlegm From smoking ten fags every hour. Do they honestly think, when they're stinking of drink That a girl in her twenties would be Happy at all with their base mating call Not driven almost to the brink? Is it just the beer, when they start to leer? The drink bubbling away in their guts. Their bald heads are shining Their trousers too tight Do they think that barmaids are sluts?

Hi Lettie - welcome to WOL. That's a great poem here on your profile page - maybe you'd like to put it on the blog section? I'm sure it would go down well with some of us on here :)
