Pinup Girls

'Pinup Girls'





A pinup girl is a kind of cartoon character



With a disproportionate mind and figure.



She has this facial expression, the same one constantly,



As if to say wow, a birthday cake, just for me?





She lives in a fantasy world



In which everyone's soul has been sold



Living lives of raucous absurdity



Macho men ogle at the pinup girls in the city.



 

A pinup girl, upon noticing she's being noticed,



Will keep on walking but will look back with mock embarrassment.



If she carries one, she'll twirl her umbrella



Blinking long black lashes till someone shouts hey, ragazza bella!



 

Her walk is a sight to behold, a sight quite comic at least,



Waddling, high heeled, well tapered legs clumsily a-jut from a wasp thin waist.



A streetwalker, but not a whore, as innocent as a virgin but not an angel,



She's a pinup girl.

Thanks Linda. Funny you should mention Jessica Rabbit...she was on my mind as I was writing this! I happen to be surrounding by girls with the same kind of attitude and personality, so sometimes I need to vent...

Hi Conor, I never thought of it that way. Kind of like, Jessica, the cartoon character from; Roger Rabbit... Wonderful tight imagery, Linda
