With water bottles always at hand.

And texting while walking
Or perhaps it’s just part of their brand.

And so joined in a game with a cord.
She became so besotted
With being tied up and knotted
She won a macramé award.

Standing Proud

A woman who was decidedly cute,
Was wearing the flag as a suit.
Her breasts were displayed
When the anthem was played
So her nipples could stand and salute.

And then weep over your lot.
No-one else to blame.
