Tell It Like It Is

Clipart image of a man wagging his finger.

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 25 June 2021, glib.

The boyfriend displaying outrage,
‘Cos his girlfriend was showing her age,
“Please go put on some make up,
Or quite soon we will break up”,
She replied, “Fuck off back to your cage”.

Incidentally Ingrid, who is far more eloquent than I (and who is far more subtle) wrote a brilliant poem along very similar lines only last night. If you don’t know her already, please check her out.
