The Performer

I scorn
To perform
Like a circus seal.
Slippery as an eel
They are.
A girl may go far
In the ring …

“It is just a little thing
To turn a trick. Do you know
Ms so-and-so?
She was shy
And would “rather die”,
But now it comes easy as water off a duck’s back to her.
Yes people will stare
At you,
I don’t deny that this is true.
But all is fair
In love and war
And there are good tips
For girls who do tricks”.
