Reply to Carol Ann Duffy – an old poem

Reply to Carol Ann Duffy

Carol Ann Duffy, eat your words –

Your mum posed like Marilyn,

But mine looked like her.

 

While your mother posed in a Marilyn stance,

Mine had the blonde hair

And knew how to dance.

 

I inherited Mum’s nature and the blue of her eyes,

But all I got from Marilyn was her dress size!
