“Portrait of Maria Walpole, Countess Waldergrave, later H.R.H Duchess of Gloucester and Edinburgh” (1765) (detail) by Francis Cotes (1726-1770).

Rope Walker

She wears circus hair
So people stare
Hands up hands down
She follows a clown
And smokes in the sun
As she breaks into a run
Inspite of trousers so tight they’re mean
Why did she opt for jeans
When they slide off the hip
So no one can grip
She falls
Before her pride calls
Up she stands
and commands
Help to try it again
Learning life is easier with friends
