Teenage dream

Beautiful feisty and famous
Submissive to all our desires
No-one could possibly blame us
The lady lit all of our fires

So sultry and wanton, delicious
Each feature a perfect delight
Her lips were so red and lubricious
Her promises kept every night

All of my friends felt the same then
A spell was cast over us all
Attracting the cocks like a game hen
The poster on everyone’s wall!

Author notes

Any poster, any generation, doesn’t matter …

Just for a change I’ll put something about form here
All in trimeter alternating male and female rhymes

And this bit thanks to Mairi who checked what I had written rather than what I thought I had!

dactyl-dactyl-trochee
amphibrach-amphibrach- iamb
dactyl-dactyl-trochee
amphibrach-amphibrach- iamb

amphibrach x3
amphibrach-amphibrach- iamb
amphibrach x3
amphibrach-amphibrach- iamb

dactyl-dactyl-trochee
amphibrach-amphibrach- iamb
amphibrach x3
amphibrach-amphibrach- iamb

I can’t believe it is a form with a name but for those who remember old songs think

“My bonnie lies over the ocean …”
