THOUGHTS ON BREAST FEEDING IN PUBLIC

entry picture

(A re-post from 2015)

 

I well recall some years ago

Before I had a car and so

I’d caught the bus to go to town

I paid my fare and then sat down;

A woman was sat next to me

(I paid no mind and nor did she);

And so in silence on our way

We journeyed, till I heard her say

“If you don’t eat up” she began,

“I’ll give it to this nice young man”;

I glanced and saw then as she smiled

A gypsy woman and young child;

She wore a t-shirt and short skirt,

Her face was black ingrained with dirt

And dangling out a grubby tit;

The youngster turned away from it

(I do not blame the boy one bit!)

I said to him with nervous grin,

“You tuck in, son; you tuck in!”

The same thing happened to my Grandad (who is no longer with us) when he was a young lad. The thought of it caused him to bring up his Guinness, and he was haunted by the incident for the rest of his life.

I didn’t want to run the risk a second time, Don. I got a car after that.
And thanks for the “Like”, Jennifer.

“Wooden tit” - where did that come from, Po? Only you!
And thanks for the Like, Kimberly.

Great poem... I love that last line.

It would be funny if she had a wooden tit wouldn't it.

My thoughts are weird

As for breastfeeding in public... I would, wouldn't you!
