Blow Her Trumpet

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






She is a charming siren,
a decoy, lure and shrew.
Today we end her bon-ton,
to rid the witches' brew.

She is a dead beat harlot,
a sluggard, lag and shrew.
Today we paint her scarlet,
to rid the witches' brew.

She is a tempting Circe,
a spoiler, fix and shrew.
Today we seize her mercy,
to rid the witches' brew.

She is an empty call-girl,
a chasm, gap and shrew.
Today we purge her churl,
to rid the witches' brew.

She is a sexy coquette,
a faker, flirt and shrew.
Today we read her motet,
to rid the witches' brew.

She is an effete strumpet,
a vixen, hag and shrew.
Today we blow her trumpet,
to rid the witches' brew.
