Yes. A Woman.

I am a woman of air and water.

Propelled by hidden forces,

Recklessly optimistic.

 

I am a woman who watches

The steady ebb and flow of the tide,

Feels the world turn

 

I am a woman who counts.

Who understands facts and figures,

And is…counting.

 

I am the kind of woman,

Who wears red lipstick! I warn you,

I can be trouble.

 

I am a woman who keeps

An emery board in a beside drawer

I’m dangerous

 

I’m a woman who understands

The consequences of kisses, yet still

Ignores them

 

I am a woman who laughs

Whilst rising high as a kite

In Life’s Jetstream

 

I am a woman on a mission

To fight for Respect. Justice and Equality

For every woman

Queer Christmas

It’s the festive season, Hip hip hooray!

Now’s a good time to be happy and Gay

This time of year can be lonely and cold

So get out those glad-rags, be daring. Be bold

 

Try a new lipstick, buy a sprig of mistletoe

Tune into the season, its ringing Go Gay Go!

Dry clean that jacket. Put on that bow tie

If you feel like snogging, don’t think why?

 

Christmas time can be stressful and fraught

Overspending, overeating, doing what you ought

So relax and smile a little, look around you, it’s free.

Enjoy the many pleasures of our Community

 

Be kind, be nice, it is the seasonal mission

Spread love and goodwill, I give you my permission

Just one more thing to say before I go

I wish you a Merry Xmas, with lots of Yo, Ho, Ho!

Poem for London Pride

Watch me perform this at London Pride 2016!


Let’s Celebrate this day,

Be proud of who we are.

Dazzling in diversity.

Here from near and far.

 

Just look around and see

It’s Love that sets us free.

We’re every colour, creed and style

L. G. B. I. T.

 

Our hearts are open wide

There is no need to hide.

Embraced by our community

Being who we want to be.

 

So here at London Pride

With friends on every side.

Let’s dance and sing and shout,

We’re Queer, we’re Proud, we’re Out.
