The Teddy Girls


The Teddy Girls

“My world is just as smart as yours”, they said.
“My hair piled high is simply fashion , sly.
I am a well-bred, English girl who’s fed
the latest fashion magazines to spy.”

“My place a flirting, highfalutin’, sir;
My jeans now turned conspicuously dared.
To show the best part of the leg; demurs
to show less than Edwardian would share.

Our world might shock old Edward, I would say
but girls are more contemporary, now.
We’ve much more pride than in the hanky days;
we’ve noted we are not man’s slave, somehow.

The masculine lapel; the tailored coat
does give a flair; fair warning to the bloat!
