Bikini-d

 

My girl and I sat on the beach. We’d had a little tiff,

I tried to talk a time or two. Response was just a sniff,

Then finally, real desperate, I turned to her and said,

“We’ve got to talk a bit or this relationship is dead!”

She still said nothing, sat there staring at the pretty view,

I thought I’d introduce to her a topic that she knew,

“I find it funny, Babe,” I said. “Apparel at the beach.

“If someone wore their bra and knickers, sure you’d hear a screech!

“Yet in bikinis they appear, and onlookers applaud,

“So why is one acceptable, the other says you’re flawed?”

She sat there just a moment more, then gave a little cough,

“I don’t care what they say, Hon, please go and take them off!”


And now for the ultimate in Bikini poetry!

Cause Mondays do get knocked a lot,
With poetry, we all besought
To try to make the week begin
With gentle thoughts,
Perhaps a grin?
So KarenCharlotteMimi, me
Have crafted poems for you to see.
And now you’ve read what we have wrought…
Did we help?
Or did we not?

To Cheer the Lonely, we will try!

  1. I so loved the "Itsy Bitsy Bikini" song my my childhood. I still do. My one experience with a bikini was a disaster. Pro tip: don't crochet one.

  2. Thank you for this huge smile. Yes why is it so? I have many a times taken a dip in my undies and gone commando (I remember the prompt ;) ) on the return journey. I think this is more acceptable here in Denmark where you're never far from the coast and could accidentally pass a tempting beach ;)
    Itsy bitsy .. is just wonderful.
    Alana - you made me laugh out loud!
