Khaki

Mostly I wear sensible shoes

Conservative jewelry is what I choose.

My favorite shade of lipstick is light bronze.

Soft rock is the station where my radio belongs.

 

My life is khaki,

But I dream in “Piccadilly Pink”

 

I wear slips under questionable skirts,

“Oh rats” is the extent of my curse,

I watch 60 Minutes on Sunday nights;

Vanilla ice cream is my delight.

 

My life is khaki,

But I dream in “Cherries Jubilee”

 

I like to paint my toenails red,

I sing dirty songs in my head,

I fantasize about raunchy tattoos,

“Wild Child” inked above my stiletto shoes.

 

My life is khaki,

But I dream in “I’m Not Really a Waitress” red.
