CCC - Still Waters

Still Waters
A lady, most outwardly demure,
Had a red dragon, from a tattooer.
It wasn't Chinese,
It was Welsh, if you please,
And well away from the casual viewer.

  1. Is this meaning that the Tallulah Bankhead travelled to a place that is being hidden from the public to be having her tattoo?

  2. You could interpret it that way. You would be wrong but you could do it.

  3. Who would have thunk? Tallulah? I am shocked! (Smiles)

  4. Inwardly not so demure, I would think..

  5. Intriguing dear J Cosmo, one would have never thought it possible. :)
    xoxoxo ♡

  6. Very witty! But ouch. (Not a big fan of tattoos.)

  7. Tallulah and dragon tattoos ... can't get much better than that, I'm a-thinking.


  8. Note that Tallulah was the illustration not the inspiration.

    A man most outwardly demure
    Had a ring in the hue of silver
    Not on his finger
    Nor in his ear did it linger
    But in a place more distinctly impure

  10. But soft! Is this a shot across the bows? We can't have that!

    Said the man with the stainless steel ring:
    I’m at a loss how you could think such a thing.
    I am not only demure
    I am exceptionally pure
    And larks think of me when they sing.

  11. While the impurity needed rebuking,
    I don't buy the story you're spruking.
    The picture that you paint
    Of you - well, it ain't,
    And the larks of the world are all puking.

  12. A man more wordy than terse
    Responded in a limercky verse:
    Who'd have thought that my nipple
    Would create such a ripple;
    It could have been so much worse!


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
