The Voyeur



what's your favourite word dearie
is it wee
I hope it's wee
wee's such a nice wee word
like a wee hairy dog
with two wee eyes
such a nice wee word to play with dearie
you can say it quickly
with a wee smile
and a wee glance to the side
or you can say it slowly dearie
with your mouth a wee bit open
and a wee sigh dearie
A wee sigh
put your wee head on my shoulder dearie
oh my
a great wee word
and scottish
it makes me proud.

I thought that my last poem in my week of poems should be a happy one, or at least one that makes me smile. It was a challenge to find one I'll have you know, I like moving, emotional and downright depressing poems. The poetry equivalent of those 'whiny white boy songs' that I love but The Boy won't let me listen to.
