Who Wants to Be a Lady in Waiting? – Written October 2009 (Aged 34)

Who Wants to Be a Lady in Waiting?

how long will it last –
till one day –
they just drive past
how long will it last
who will put up –
with second best
sub standards
and no respect
oh, you are gorgeous
but who –
wants to be a lady in waiting
i cannot deny –
you can catch the eye
but who wants to keep shovelling shit –
out of a pig sty
how long, before inside
they find that the love given back
has already died




James Garratt – October 2009
