Its A Woman Thing

“Does my bum look big in this?” As she talks to the mirror. “Is it my imagination or yesterday did I I look thinner?”
Why is that button laid on the floor? Why wont my zip fasten? Its broken once more!
Can I find a longer top to cover the parts that matter, or a darker one with less of an artists splatter?
Do you want to borrow that once a month dress, for when your tummies big and useless?
“Have you put on more weight, is the diet carrying on?”
This came from my best mate, the bitch-she wont be, for long!

Why do the models look so good, with curvy waist and magazine boobs?
Gnashing white teeth, hair so long.
Latest handbag as hangers on. Chloe, Fendi, Gucci, Armani,
Searching ebay, spending barmby!
How much bling does one woman need, how many handbags, shoes of greed?
Gold shoes, blue shoes, black and white too. Wedges stiletos all for you.
Feel like Dorothy from Wizard of Oz as glittering red shout out of the box!

Track suit versus business suit? Karen Miller skirt.
I think I need a new outfit, now that really cannot hurt!
Birthday suit standing bare with a smile upon my face.
Every bump and every line, my tans my saving grace.
Another girly shopping day wouldn’t really bother me.
Those colourful bags, discarded price tags.
Happy bank managers, with our overdrafts.
Who cares about the way I look and the skin upon my face
Its the heart deep inside of me thats botox enraged!
My smile shines for all to see. my tear black circled eyes.
The clock has been ticking, the years not so kind.

Lipsticks for everyday, colour me red…im out to play.
Colour me pink, needy and lush, one girly day is definite a must.
Colour me neutral its a boring day! I want to blend no more to say.
I wake up from the dream and see how I look.
It has taken hard work and a low fat cookery book.
Is there two of me in one, which ones having all the fun?
Let us be happy the way that we are.
Slim and trendy with signs of bipolar.

Sod it tonight, one more glass of wine!
Two more chocolates and I will feel just fine
You will find me on play boy, think its page nine!
My fridge it looks like a veggie garden.
An orchid of rainbow fruit.
Peanuts in the drawer, do you think I care a hoot?
While watching dirty dancing, Mamma Mia too
out comes all the popcorn. Pepsi and homemade brew.
One more rule of thumb never forget, to prise,
all the compliments you can muster
and have a best friend that lies.
