Doggy Style Premiere Contest Winner

The eighties set fashion on fire, That’s why it’s the look I desire! So I’ve nailed it, long-term, With a hot poodle perm, Just like Brian May, Cher and Mariah. Showed my stylist a photo of Whitney She went ever so pale very quickly, She got acid and bleach, Three big drumfuls of each, And some creosote. “Yes!” I cried, “Hit me!” She slathered me, crisped me like crazy, I said, “Hold up the mirror! Amaze me!” And - woohoo and way-hay! I was Jennifer Grey, Ripe ‘n’ ready to woo Patrick Swayze! But then - it all got rather strange, For my poodle perm started to change, Seems its poodle-dog mind Was not noble or kind - It was dirty, debauched and deranged! My friends weren’t impressed. They’d cry “Wowzers!” As my perm tried to dry-hump their trousers, It would steal all their shoes, Roll in animal poos - I was banned from their elegant houses. But soon they were howling with laughter, It would jump in the lake - I’d go after! Chasing kitties for kicks, Going crazy for sticks, My new perm was a doggy disaster! It would seek other perms! It would spot em, Bound up close, and then sniff round their bottom! This all got me in trouble, With Bon Jovi’s double, Who called the police, which was rotten. So now I’m awaiting the chop, Down at “Woofterz”, the dog-grooming shop. Well, I’ll no longer feel, Like a smokin’ Brooke Shields, But at least all the lawsuits will stop! 6 May 2018 For Maureen McGreavy’s Contest “Tiger Lilies, Dandelions and Bearberries Oh My!”

Back to congratulate, Nina, I knew this was headed for greatness! (Please do not use aforementioned admission of man-perm for blackmail - I have little to squeeze at this point, haha!) I did not place, and I'm getting few comments on my entry ... clearly I have learned to view my work with "Greg-colored-glasses", but how to change?? ;-) Blessings and best wishes for this wonderful write, my friend! <3

Don’t go changin’! - we all have days when our muse, the judge and the stars are not aligned - yes, even a contest-meister such as yourself. N/As are good for the soul - I should know!! And don’t worry. Your man-perm secret is safe. Thank you so much for your comment Greg :-)

I know, who’dathoughtit... you write about birth, life, death, beauty... and then get the biggest accolades for a poem about a trouser-humping hairdo! Good thing too ;-)

Nina!! This is wonderful, lol - I SO needed a chuckle and this gave me a whole doghouse full of them! Charming and creative and fun as heck ... it's got me squirming for a perming, lol! For about two years in my 20's I was getting man-perms cuz my hair is so freaking straight and uncooperative, and I took such crap for it ... an odd sort of relating, but it is what it is, haha! Loved this write - blessings and best of luck in the contest, my friend! :-) <3

Greg, this is a safe place and we can speak of anything here, but that’s quite a confession! Thank you for sharing! I was so lucky - I was just a bit too young when perms were in full swing - my mum and sister - not so lucky! Thank you for your lovely comment and so glad to have made you laugh! :-)

Potd? Dah! Absolutely. :) You entertain the hay out of us Nina. Thank You. I agree with Gershon. Epic limerick. You interject these phrases that just about make so you can barely keep reading the next line, we're laughing so hard. Ohhhhhh :) Thanks again.

Thank you very much Andrea! I also love it when people appreciate my meter! For me, it’s the core of my poetry. Getting POTD for something silly was an absolute joy too! x
