Tessa (London Nan)

Doing the chicken walk after dinner.
You wouldn’t think she had it in her.
Skin and bone, less than six stone.
A half-picked chicken could be no thinner.

But Tessa was an acrobat.
When women just did not do that.
Thick set thighs and curls all lush
With skirts so short they’d make you blush.

Took to family life in Streatham.
Then on suffered with depression.
Smoked those Regal chain by chain.
Never spoke to choke the pain.

But Tessa was an acrobat.
When women just did not do that.
Thick set thighs and curls all lush
With skirts so short they’d make you blush.

SJL, 2014
