Tattoos

The Tattoo

I’m told I am quite talented artistically, it’s true
At painting porcelain I’m quite adept
So one day I decided to invest in a tattoo
And to the local parlour, off I went

The tattoo artist welcomed me and showed me his designs
From fantasy to realistic stuff
I duly studied everything from abstract art to signs
Until, confused, I thought I’d seen enough

A small pink tinted rosebud for my buttocks held appeal
As did a flight of doves around my navel
The artist asked my preference and we shook hands on the deal
I smiled at him and climbed up on the table

I remembered all the medical procedures I’ve endured
Convinced I am the subject of a curse
Despite assurance that I’ll almost certainly be cured
The outcome is invariably worse

And so instead of flowers or birds I made a small concession
I bared my belly and had written there
A cautionary notice for the medical profession
Extremely Fragile. Handle With Great Care.

Just a famous writer - it's the one by my food column in the newspaper. It can't be too bad as people recognise me from it everywhere I go. Can be annoying sometimes

Cheers

Lynne - LOVED the poem - and I never realised you are famous :oops: :oops: :oops:

Can I tell my friends that I know someone famous? Can you send me a lock of your hair in case it becomes valuable??

I'm soo impressed ................
