I looked on Facebook and I said 'Strewth!'
When I saw a shot of Ruth
In a coat of brightest red.
'That's Ruby Tuesday stuff!' I said.
Saves me looking through my files!
A little reminder of the British Isles.

Lucy sat down on a park-bench, to rest her weary legs,
And up to her wandered a vagrant, the sort of man who begs.
'How about a bit of fun?' the vagrant sort of wheedled,
And Lucy, being a lady, felt positively needled.
'How dare you said Lucy, angrily, going bright red in the face,
'I have got high standards and you are a disgrace.'
'Come on, love, stop pretending' the scruffy beggar  said,
'If you're not after a bit of fun why are you in my bed?'

That second one is hilarious!

Yes! Your red is fun! But I am still chuckling about the ironic twist in the second rollicking rhyme!

Any ruby will do, so the jacket in red will keep you warm if needed, or offer a fine ruby style if warm enough! The poem is great, we can lose our cool if we lose our perspective as the lady apparently has...

Thanks to Ruth for "lending" us her "rubiness."
