On July 22nd, I woke from an afternoon nap, with this in my head. May cause raised eyebrows or blushes; not for the faint of heart 🙂
A Bawdy Tune For The Gypsy Moon
When I’m in the mood for a little fun and a few spicy sips,
I head to The Mermaid Saloon and watch for the ships!
I muss up my hair, dab some color on my eyes and lips,
add a basket of jewelry on ears, neck and wrists!
I dress for laughing and drinking
and dancing for hours, for catching that look,
then reeling them in and sinking the hook!
After hugs and hellos and downing a few,
I like to sing with the sailors who stand at the bar all askew!
Then I dance a few jigs with other merry-making women who know just what to do,
and last, but not least,
I like the never-kept, but promising kiss, of a one-eyed, tattooed, peg-legged stranger or two!
