True Perspective


supplied the first line


A fellow was telling a tale
About what it was like to be male
He said 'Females, of course,
Are the real potent force
And we're very low on the scale.'


The jackets of books are designed to tease.
'Not too much information, please!'
Take the jacket above........ the blue is cool;
But titillation is the rule.
The figure doesn't show its face;
Is the lady shy or in disgrace?
The title is a mystery;
'Blue' is calm, it seems to me.
But 'fire' is hot, suggesting amour
 But it's a forbidden love, for sure.
Is the lady a Nun? Has she turned away? 
Is she mounting the steps to a Church to pray?
Which brings me to the subject of sin!
Oh dear! What mess is the lady in?
It's more intriguing the more I look!
I'll simply have to buy the book!
