Go Go Girl

Pretty girl dancing on stage with an edge.
Hiding softness with cold eyes that look dead.

Costumes and glitter a mans fantasy.
Not the person she thought one day she'd be.

Daddy's little girl that was yesterday.
Today she's Lost in the rolls that she plays.

She looks in the eyes of the men as they stare.
Dancing and giarating swinging her hair.

Feeling the beat as she moves to the song.
Trying to believe she's doing nothing wrong.

Hoots and hollers they say take it all off.
Dirty old man at the front with a cough.

Dancing for money she has bigger dreams.
At home all alone her tears fall in streams.

A few more months maybe another year
Yet look at these girls that are still dancing here

Lies so convincing one day they will stop
Pouring out dreams never reaching the top

    So sad, too often our dreams get pushed down because we think we can't do them, or we just settle for less. We never should settle. Seeing this perspective was interesting, yet sad. Nicely done!

    Richard, I really like this poem. You hit it dead on. Strip joints are meat grinders and like everything else in life only the young survive. Nice write Kilmer

    I like this very much. Sometimes we don't know why people do the things they do. It could be because that's what they want to do and than maybe they have no choice. Thanks for sharing..... Lucilla

    I wonder if they still use the term go go girl, do they? this is a great portrayal of how those women are going nowhere. Such a degrading job for a poor girl to have. Nicely done, Richard.

    I don't think so, I think that ended in the 70s.

    :( Poor GO GO dancer...Makes me think of women who go to countries as domestic helpers...have their passports confiscated by their "employers" and are forced into prostitution and work in cabarets! :( This is a REAL problem....Oh, great write. Define pretty....please! :)

    Pretty is whatever comes to mind for the reader. What you have described is an even sadder tale, perhaps someone will write about it for my Girl rising contest.

    Hopa!!! Bring on the pole!! Very good write, Richard. I think you will enjoy my "Showtime". Your girl is forced into this lifestyle. Mine does it for the sheer pleasure of male company. I enjoyed reading this, my friend. Licia :-)

    I used to DJ at a strip club many years ago. Yes, it was pretty much just as you described here. Best part: all that money those guys tipped the girls, the girls paid me with that. :) Good times! Very cool piece you wrote here! I love how you concluded this.
