Sue Bust

Sometimes poems decide that a rhymes with b rhymes with a – as Sue says: ‘Can’t go according to a maths formula.’

Acclamation

Singing into her double chin
Shoulders straight, tummy in
Showing weakness is a sin

Afternoons of bridge and gin
Tough rooster served as coq au vin
Singing into her double chin

Frayed and penniless to begin
Life a constant fight to win
Showing weakness is a sin

Never used a begging tin
Face all hardships with a grin
Singing into her double chin

Made it to the highest pin
Uptight, upright and holding in
Showing weakness is a sin

Is it all it should have been?
Does she hold her peace within?
Singing into her double chin
Showing weakness is a sin
