A very true story


My Mother Was A Corsetiere

 

My Mother was a corsetiere

A career for her befitting

She tightened waistlines and flattened rears

In most every fitting sitting

 

Infatuated by moms’ clientele

Behind curtains I peek-a-booed

Much too young for show and tell

I secretly sneaked my voyeur views

 

‘Till one sad day they found me out

And I got what I deserved

Dad bashed me with his big hand clout

But couldn’t cloud what I’d observed
