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!
