Sad News for the Bearded Lady

Sad News for the Bearded Lady

That your girlish form is rather cute
is not a fact we would dispute;
and though you’re held in good repute,
yet every male’s lack of  pursuit
from callow youth to crusty coot
is a subject that is moot.
The men would be more resolute—
more determined to press their suit—
if only you were less hirsute!

The prompt today was “pursue.”

        Perhaps, but Frida had more than eyebrows. Even so, women with facial hair, are not exactly the same as a testosterone laden male.
        Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder,
        as many will attest.
        I enjoyed your poem, attention it did catch.
        The hairy legs, arms and breast.
        Will not compare to any Rubens-esque match
        With or without a full length beard,
        I like my women sweet … and
        really not too weird

        Cheers Jamie

      I had a house concert here a few days ago and my friend Becky sang a song about a love affair between a bearded lady and crocodile man. It was so sweet. Must ask for the lyrics. I also read a good book called
      “The Museum of Extraordinary Things” that dealt with that topic. So guess bearded ladies and other carnival sideshow acts were on my mind.
