i’m just a cheap chippie
from the rough inner city
i like to swing my legs in a bar

i cuss and i smoke
and i tell a mean joke
come with me, and i’ll take you far

bet you like my red hair
and my skirt up to there
to show my legs so long and perty

if you’d like to consume
my cheap perfume
come over here and talk to me dirty

my lips ain’t sealed
and that’s my appeal
i’m brassy and brash, i’m shoddy

so dig my action
cause that’s my attraction
i live to get down and naughty

i live in a trailer
i spit like a sailor
my manners have long since gone

i’m easily led
so just take me to bed
with me, you don’t have to con

no, my teeth ain’t my pride
but my heels are still high
and they ain’t no runs in my hose

so you can be greedy,
come on, call me Edie
i’m easy to get to know!

i ain’t got no airs
hell, i’ll come over there
all it takes is a little wink

so come on and get it,
you wont’ regret it;
Hey Baby .. buy me a drink?

What exactly is your idea of working?

Comment by The Songbird on February 15, 2018 at 5:42pm

Why, making my living by my own hands, kind Sir.  Thus far,  I've had a pretty successful lifetime of it!  Thanks, and ...  come on over n' see me, some time.  Lol!

Thanks, Monkeyshines!  Every internet dream, isn't she?!

Oh yeah.

I love the illustration.... those tawdry books were always about a womans lust and how succumbing to it inevitably leads to The Great Fall - and lots of shameshameshame. 

But we all know the secret truth - that desire is warm and cozy and so seductive..

If succumbing to it doesn’t lead to marriage, not necessarily classified as a Great Fall

Who succumbs whom?  There's the rub?  Nobody succumbs alone?  Equal partners? I dunno!!  Lol.  This was actually written  -and posted-  to a date site, in response to all the sincere wishes I read men write about who they want.  But when they meet such a girl, like me, naaah!  They still lunge, grasp your hand and thrust it into their lap, grab yours, or attempt a maul-kiss goodbye as paybacks for that lunch they purchased!  Hey!  Give'em what they really want, huh?  Just a fun; why pretend?!

Yeah, just as we see politically, feelings of entitlement are an issue

I LOVE desire.  I LOVE lust.  lust was a highlight of being young and crazy and hormone driven - I did many stupid things, MANY MANY MANY.  And I had a ball, literally, figuratively.  Life is to be lived, sex is to be had.  We are made for it - in fact, it's the driving force of being alive.  

Women all over the world are so constrained, so corsetted and forced into molds.  why?  because the force of our sexuality, the reality that we are the source of sex and that our bodies create life - it terrifies men.  it terrifies us sometimes.  it's big.  but hell - we're up to it!  and now we're taking it!

Ya know, there is a cure for any and all of this.  Ask!  It's reeeaally simple!  

I don't feel that I take anything by funnin' with it; in fact, it's meant exactly the opposite, to come with!, include!  I wouldn't want to Take anyway; who wants a hollow victory?  I don't feel that women are the source of sexuality, sex, or creating life, either.  It's not like we can do that alone.  Neither gender can. 

So this incessant insistence upon our differences is actually a moot point to begin with.  So - therein is the fun!  Laugh at yourself, along with your playdate.  That post actually led to more real conversations than the 'sincere' ones!!  Maybe it's just hard to be disappointed, when you start from the bottom?  Hahaaaahaa!!
