Topic: Not mentioned on a page. Helena. Donovan.
I remembered i had this piece while reading the "Favourite Books thread. This was written some years ago now..
I must admit to having to clean it up somewhat for chordie.
Not mentioned on a page!
If i could be a book on musty shelf be found
Small little paperback, or kit glove leather bound
I’d hate to be a Mills and Boon! Oh, that would make me sick?
Where every man is not a man and every woman a chick.
I’d wish to lie between the sleeves waiting to be read
Complete and total mystery, gathering dust with age.
Would i be ancient art or cookery, Exotic, full of dishes?
Seldom used just perused, but every dish delicious
Maybe a holy bible a miracle to unfold?
A harlot who went astray then came back to the fold.
Should I go under cover a thriller I could be?
Espionage or crime, infiltrating me.
A modern glamorous novel different and fresh?
Emotional, imaginative, worthy of my flesh
A splendid coffee table book, world images id span
Discoverer of flora never known to man.
On the other hand!
A raunchy book of love, funny with affection
I could be the hero’s sexual attraction.
Some children’s books? Colourful, babyish and silly
Innocent but credulous, to everyone who read me
Or a tacky little magazine full of this and that
Useless information, choked with idle chat.
Some Geographic picture on Time or in Hello
A sexy playboy centre fold, where every man said “WOW!
My book is not completed yet, each day I’m on a mission
Memories collated for my very first edition
It’s not sepia or dog-eared , musty like dried sage
A life about a woman, not yet mentioned on the page.
