Wallace Dean LaBenne

Behind The Blind

Professor, therapist, author and poet.

She stood behind an open blind
in total nudity.
With risque pose she held a rose
for all the world to see.

A perfect ten among women
she was most ravishing.
With cunning wiles and lurid smiles
she could be lavishing.

Her flagrant mien some found obscene
around the village square.
As to withhold the moral code
she'd flaunt her body bare.

Though scandalous her recrudesce
has earned this scene renown.
Was it her pose or comely rose
that enchanted the town?
