[] />

He has slept with accountants and brokers,
With a cowgirl (well, someone from Healds).
He has slept with non-smokers and smokers
In commercial and cultural fields.

He has slept with book-keepers, book-binders,
Slept with auditors, florists, PAs
Child psychologists, even child minders,
With directors of firms and of plays.

He has slept with the stupid and clever.
He has slept with the rich and the poor
But he sadly admits that he's never
Slept with a poet before.

Real poets are rare, he confesses,
While it's easy to find a cashier.
So I give him some poets' addresses
And consider a change of career.

Uses rhyme and meter and her topics are clever. My kinda poet(ess)!

I had not heard of her. I like the above poem, but what's up with the flower link?

First time I've come across her, but her wit speaks to me. I giggled over the bath in Leeds.
