It Is Outrageous 1

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






It is audacious to call her curvaceous
while she looks like a stick.
It is outrageous to call her voracious
while she starves herself sick.

It is fallacious to call her courageous
while she quickly caves in.
It is outrageous to call her tenacious
while she quits with a grin.

It is hellacious to call her pugnacious
while she bids all goodwill.
It is outrageous to call her predacious
while she never could kill.
