Sugary hips

There’s a girl over there
with a pear shaped figure
she’s got pearly white teeth
and hips made of sugar
she wears frangipanis
in her silky blonde hair
she keeps frangipanis
on the dash of her car
she smiles at strangers
cos strangers are angels
she wears coral bangles
she jingles and jangles
her toes are adorned
with some shells from the ocean
she fills her head full of notions
and potions,
she swims with the dolphins
and saves all the whales
she protests against cruelty
tHats so common to snails
she lives in a van with a huge smiley face
and wears denim jeans tied with a
white shoelace
she loves everyone and the sun burns
her lips
that’s the girl over there
with the sugary hips
