Majorcan Older Ladies
Majorcan Older Ladies

I’m convinced all the older ladies
In Majorca use the same hairdresser.
Their hair is invariably short and grey.
I sussed this, no need for a professor.

On Sunday at the side of the market
They sit, chat and drink rosé wine.
Then saunter home carrying shopping bags
Feeling smooth and mellow and just fine.

Iberian ham and Manchego cheese
They take to their husbands dear.
Who have been in a different bar
Sitting, chatting and drinking beer.
