A Booby Trap!


She is not flesh and bones
Of insignificance.
She is intelligent substance,
And decency of character.
She is womanly flesh
Of hand felt proportions!
She knows her way,
And will hold your hand
Until you safely find yours.
There is no judgement in her compassion,
Although, there is a giggle in her eyes.
And a wiggle in her walk.
Faith and love are the warmth
In her nature.
There is a nurturing heart
Beating under the fullness of her breast....

Did somebody say 'Breast'?
Holy Bazoongas! ! !

Most of the time,
The story ends there.

    beautiful and very nurturing somehow, thank you ruby. I sort of read this as a cynical critique but also very warm and idealistic somehow, a very well balanced poem. (Report) Reply

    Very interesting, Ruby... perceptive, reflective, dealt with with humor... Hmmm... A Booby Trap by Ruby Honeytip, a clever 'manipulation' or just 'coincidence'? ? ? ... whatever, a great poem... Terry (Report) Reply

    There is no judgement in her compassion,
    Although, there is a giggle in her eyes.
    This one makes you think a bit- about more than boobs. An entertaining mix of expression. (Report) Reply

    the trap that is hidden,
    slowly grow to be shown,
    hardened lumps in soft tissue,
    which the hands can hold and trace,
    how many hands misses those stones,
    to throw at the ladies who not known,
    booby traps are scary, check it monthly,
    otherwise the hills will be flattened,
    termites can pierce through the tissues,
    people with boobs and the handlers,
    Beware of this nasty trap tormentor. (Report) Reply

    A great tribute to womankind - why are women always defined in terms of their breasts, there's more to women than just boobs, they have brains too, and good ones at that - intelligent substance yes! ! (Report) Reply

  • Rookie Stevie Taite (11/27/2012 4:48:00 AM)

    Yes, boobs are a terrible distraction from the substance, as are legs and bottoms! It catches the eye, its hard to deny. Superficial surmise, much more beneath lies. Ruby is a fantastic poet! If you haven't already, go read them all! X x x (Report) Reply

    Never was worried about the respect, Ruby, but do think, very funny lady, that you should vow rather than swear. (Report) Reply

    The..wiggle when a walkin' an' a giggle when a talkin..' is from Chantilly Lace by The Big Bopper who died in the same plane as Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens. Fun song. (Report) Reply
