Slow Movin Tights

I'm in me bath here, with a box of red cheer, 
yeah a box of red cheer, beer's too bloody dear.
Me mind's wanderin twixt big tits and riches, 
bein able to scratch at what itches, 
without scratchin the bum out your britches.
 
If they think you got what, 
they'd rather they'd got, 
mate, hang onto your hat, 
they'll bloody take that. 

That girl in black tights, so jam-packed with delights, 
nights full of delights in them slow movin tights. 
She's not, like Jacko reckons, a whore.
Wouldn't lie on me bare wooden floor.
Christ, I did nothin to get to be poor.
 
And you can't pay what's due
so your creditors sue? 
Funny old world, not half.
But good for a laugh.
 
I can't help but hear next door's shoutin and tears,
all their shoutin and tears, I can hear em from here, 
through the stem of me glass on the wall. 
Pray to God he don't hit her at all. 
I'm half pissed and spliffed and I never could brawl.
 
But I stand in the queue, 
for a place in the zoo. 
Heard you shouldn't have pride.
They wouldn't have lied.
 
A party's upstairs but I can't breathe their airs.
I won't breathe their airs, them there upstairs.
So I fill the bathroom with me smoke.
All those girls shaggin some other bloke.
I just lie here and soak and suck on me toke.
 
What's it like not to do
what the pain wants you to? 
If it's all that seems real, 
what else do you feel? 

I hear downstairs' soul hit his lavatory bowl.
That porcelain bowl gets the whole of his soul, 
as I wring out the bladder of red.
All the sweetest of girls, Jacko said, 
have big whites to their eyes that aint never've bled.
 
There aint nothin so nice 
as those whitest of whites.
On rich girls with sweet arses
in slow movin tights.

    I read this one again and then realized I had seen it in a contest earlier and congratulated you!! Yes, this one is really descriptive because you are painting a tawdry world with your lingo here!! making it very down to earth and cool sounding. Well, gosh, I imagine you HAVE been to Paris because from this kind of writing, I am thinking you must be British?

    Wow, you took me into this world completely. Love the language. Each stanza can stand alone as a mini-poem, but together they're a masterpiece. I love the alternation between description and reflection. The reflective stanzas are each quite powerful in their own way, helping to flesh out the character of the protagonist. Going in my faves!

    I don't know whether to pour adulation on you for your creative vision, your placement of almost musical cadence through your words or for your masterful character development through your ability to build someone from both their physical environment and from their internal dialogue......so I'll just randomly pour adulation on you for all of the above :-) You are awesome xxx
