This work has reached the exceptional level
a jealous rival makes a bitchy innuendo to discredit


by mfowler

insinuated something quite untrue
the bitch
lied  when she spoke to you
the snitch
she stirred the pot and value-added poison
the witch
her tale would make eyes moisten
the pitch
I heard her version and I laughed aloud
too rich
told her I'm not too proud
the switch
said I'd play Lady Godiva - no clothes
not a stitch
au naturel I loathe
the hitch
I need to borrow fleshy coloured tights
a glitch
I star on op'ning night
I itch
can't scratch and wrinkle the bogus skin
how kitsch
look at the state I'm in.

One innuendo from a jealous rival
Now struggling for my stage survival.
Too fat to sit astride white horses nude.
(I really have this thing for Asian food)

Her gossip, subtle, vicious, aimed to maim.
It's awful what some dames'll do for fame.
Said I could not 'bare' to exhibit bum.
Told director that people wouldn't come.

Don't stop me now, I want to - must break free.
Fat bottomed girls bring stallions to their knees.
The show must go on despite one dire vision.
Be like on reality television.
