2 Poems by iDrew



at school i was the lucky

one with the extra cool

dad and mum who gave me the moon

and the stars and the sun

instead of expensive plastic trash

with things that flash

costs wads of cash


the other kids for some reason

jealously wanted to be me

i had every freedom of self expression

to be me became my life lesson

and in the process

being a child was big fun


then womanhood begun like a shape

shifter i owned what boys wanted to play

with but when they couldn’t

get more than a snog or a hand

upstairs outside

‘cos i refused to be another of their unloved

lovers (which was what a council

estate girl was apparently destined

to be with a pushchair and a pram

and another bun in the oven) and getting inside

my knickers was strictly a no-no way street

then they called me





you were deffo

one of them boys

this was most certainly

one of them nights

loved up

and into each other like crazy

buttons and zips coming undone before

the key was even in the door


snogging each other to a breathless

frenzy it suddenly struck me

something was wrong


nice cushions (home boy) that rug

co-ordinates with the curtains

slow down tiger

i need to use the bathroom

miss marple i ain’t

yet i felt your stiffy (mmm)

there’s no way you’re gay

but this flat is deffo

femme fresh



make-up and sensitive

skin moisturiser

bras and knickers

in the laundry basket

even jessica fletcher

would get to the bottom

of this mystery in less than a hour



a quickie and scarper

or do i take the moral high ground

make a stand for truth

and the sisterhood

fuck it!

this is no time to act noble and good

i’m dead horny
