L is for Lucy






is for Lucy







Lucy of the hottest curves

Lucy, though quite old, has curves so hot
that folks would die to touch her as often as not -
a lumbar curve and a valgus knee
a pubic arch quite beyond sexy
assets that most other fossils haven’t got.

I'm told that's why there's just a replica -
in the museum, so robbers don't nick her.
you'll get a quick shufti
but no touching that knee!
and totally forget what was in her knickahs!!

I sometimes question what would we find
if we dug into the paleonto-logical mind?
Suppose the knees were a male's
would we get the same details
of limbs and arches, curves front and behind?


L is aLso for Lag : there is a Lag in returning comments here this week. My meticuLous scheduLes have gone sLightLy awry.  The CoLours of Life Poetry FestivaL is this Saturday, and every other evening is taken up with rehearsing. In fact, the dress researsaL is Later today, serious attack of butterfLies! But I digress, what I actuaLLy meant to teLL you was - I am going to Leap right back on track and catch up with you on Sunday.  As soon as the poetry fest is over.
