When Did You Stop Learning Baby? #amwriting #rhymingpoetry #poetry 1994 to 1996

I have been looking through my entire back catalogue and discovered I like at least 24 poems and found more I can’t even remember writing. It is, however, the rhyming ones I wrote early on, before the poetry classes, that keep dragging me back. I have just made stanza two scan, so brought the detail forward a little.

I am really looking forward to the poetry editing workshop at the end of this month as I chucked an old one into the mix, together with my Pentrich Revolution and Derbyshire Rising folk song and Shred.

I may be back on my novel at this rate (which is not Simon Says, another one). Thank you for your time, non bots!

When Did You Stop Learning Baby?

 

 

When they told you off at school

When they told you kids should mess

When they told you that you’re thick

When they made you wear that dress

 

 

When the lads forgot their work

Took up studying your chest

When you worked out it’s not cool

When they made you wear that dress

 

 

When you won a full time post

At the PR intern’s desk

But they made you make the tea

When they made you wear that dress

 

 

When you drank yourself again

To a state of helplessness

When your period was late

When they made you wear that dress

 

 

When you gave it up for love

When your house was in a mess

When he only hit you once

When your baby wore a dress

    • beckydeans says:

      There are 26 poems I am happy with and have printed out, but then there are the ones I can’t remember writing and they are interesting! I think there might be a whole anthology! Hope your writing is going well.

      • Writing has stalled thanks to man flu. Over it now, but haven’t got back into the book. Should make a start again this weekend.

        Looking forward to seeing more of your work, Hope all good with you
