A free verse for the club.

A free verse about women.

by robina1978

The author has placed a warning on this post for sexual content.
It is not easy for me to talk about women,
as I am one of them-so might be biased.
Should I take a certain group?
Possibly family or girls I was at school with.
As a start I have to state
I don`t like women very much
They tend to be bitchy
and gossip a lot.

I think the safest group are my school pals.
Do I stay playing safe?
I want to take a different view.

My family it has to be then.
Really dangerous area almost in total.
My grandmother from mothers side
gave me my thyroid disease
Graves it's called,
certainly not nice to have.
It is autoimmune based.

I now have to leave out my male family members.

My younger sister became a widow
at an early age, as she married
a guy the age of a father.
She is just two years younger than me.
She used to be very critical in her choices.
On her own she had plenty of boyfriends
the bad thing is she has frequently
had unprotected sex.
Not only that, the check-ups for the illnesses
specially AIDS are haphazard.
Mainly when her job requires this test.

My one but youngest sister
committed suicide, aged twenty seven.
I wrote about her.
She had anorexia/bulimia.
I and some of her therapist
thought there might have been incest.
Quite possible as my brother did this
with my youngest sister.

I hope none of you like to swap
female family members with me.
If you wanted this
you are completely insane.
Insanity runs in our family
insane as a horse gone wild
or a dog gone haywire.


Many thanks to Anne for the beautiful artwork.
