Bourgeois Women

Do yourself a favor, little girl.
Pick up after yourself.
For tonight, there is nobody serving you.
Standing ever so timidly in corners,
while you hurl orders at them.
No one curtsying  in aprons,
as you pass by them in corridors.
Your ripped couture,
your scandalizing secrets you hold so dear;
yet the gaping tear,
 the messy loose ends are mended by them.
Teach yourself a lesson, darling.
Pick up that blue sock
discarded in the corner.
You are your own servant, tonight.
Let the others take a breath.

    2. I hear a far cry of a lonely sparrow . A bit depressing but reproaching. Thoughtful work dear author. In between, missing somebody around?

  6. I almost forgot to leave a comment here, the other day.
    Just wanted to tell you that it's a brilliant piece. I haven't read anything like this ever. And it is the perfect heading that caught my attention..reminded me of my Sociology lectures. :P
