Magpie 181


The decolletage of Aunt Peg
Is quite something, it's true. But I beg
You to lower your glance
When she does this next dance,
For she has the most elegant leg.

But Aunt Peg, as she tilts her white neck,
Has other ideas, you can bet.
She will dance with the others,
Ee'en lie down for her lovers;
But her sitting she saves for Lautrec.

  2. Poor old Toulouse, the ladies always had to sit if he wanted to see them face to face.
    A very nice Magpie, Frances!

  4. Those lecherous bystanders, whose/
    Attitude seems conditioned by booze/
    Must be wondering if/
    Those skirts they could shift/,
    And whether her stays are Too Loose

    Sorry!
