Sylvia’s Sister

Maybe I’ll drink until I’m sick

Maybe I’ll dance like a prick

Maybe I’ll smoke ten to the dozen

Maybe I’ll put my head in the oven

Either way one thing is true

It’s got fuck all to do with you

    1. I wandered around clutching a copy as a teenager in a vain attempt to show everyone how much of an intellectual, angst ridden and pretentious twat I was 😉

      Didn’t actually read it until about 20 years later when I could actually appreciate it properly.

      It’s hard going in places, but worth the effort I found 👍ðŸ–Ī

      1. Did carrying it around work?

        My most recent attempt was a couple of years ago. Made it through about 100 pages then life got in the way.

        I’ll try again in a few years 😂💚

      2. Nose rings would have been big around that time. May have been looking at you for a different reason than you think.

        I’ll get around to it. I just have to get into the mindset of a young woman 👍💚

      3. If there’s a thing, there’s someone into it 😉

        It’s on the list. I’m sure I’ll get it next time around. Or I’ll find a teenage girl to explain it to me 👍💚

      1. When you said “hard going in places” I thought you meant stodgy and not engaging in places. So now I know what you meant. So glad I finally read it but it took my mind and thoughts back somewhere I didn’t want to go. Wish I’d met Sylvia.

      2. Me too.
        Reckon we’d have got on like a house on fire.
        Well done you for reading. And I don’t mean that to be patronising – I know too well how triggering it can be ðŸ–ĪðŸ–Ī

      1. Exactly! This is why I hate your blog, I can’t read between lines! 🙃

      2. Hahaha! Your nose is growing 😉. And that’s not just because of age 😆.

  1. Maybe he will choke on a cock
    or get pummeled in the head by a Grandfather Clock
    But No need for Sylvia’s Sister to get bent out of shape
    Unless Sylvia’s Sister is the one that far from great

    1. Haha yeah! 😂
      I was feeling particularly ‘fuck you’ when I wrote this one.

      It could have been directed at many people – thankfully most of whom I’ve spent cutting out of my life this last eighteen months or so.

      Still, they’re a great source of irate poetry! 😂ðŸ–Ī
