The Big Issue Or The Porkers Lament

Poem By Lauren Walker

Measure love in weight & I've more than most to give
Measure fun in lbs & oz's - oh what a life I live!
Big & bubbly, larger than life
Homely & cuddly, the perfect wife?

Who started all this cliche'd crap?
Did they think we'd all laugh & clap
Big is beautiful, so they say
But I'm just me, whatever I weigh!

I've no desire to be stick thin
That must bring its own chagrin
But judge me for me, not my size
This bubbly girl still has a grumpy side!

Whilst the stereotypes really get my goat
I also know you could make a tent from my coat
I've heard them all, they're oh so funny
And yes, I know I'll never make a playboy bunny

So now enough with the cliches, and the jokes
Cos I think I just heard the oven timer go....

The Journey

I wake and you're next to me,
Smile.
Holding and talking, we linger a while
Reluctantly leave our bed shaped cocoon

So Lonely

Strange people, strange places
Strange ways and strange faces
Alone yet so crowded
So empty it sounded

Lucky Me

Lucky me, trying out all these new pills,
Surely one of them will be the cure for all ills?
I wonder what this little white one will do?
Oooh, those pink dancing cows are new....

Come What May

Everything is different, and you are the key
Intense and strange, so foreign to me
Black & white gone, colours everywhere
Fragrances lingering in the flavoured air
