Size Matters

How big are you?
Cause honey, I like Ďem big.
And I am not talking about
your egotistical,
in your dreams,
she wonít be able to tell,
internet come on
I need to know that you are big enough for me.
I am a woman with
huge assets.
My skills are legendary.
And I am not wasting them on
small people
Screw that!
If you are going to dance with me,
you had better be BIG.
So how big are you?


Iíll take you on the ten cent tour.
Pointing out the landmarks
along the way.
The various dimples are inviting,
thatís a ticklish spot on the nape of the neck.
Hold on tight if you go there.
On the left hand is the fading scar from childhood drama
and the stretch marks make crisscrossing patterns
over the vast expanse of white belly.
Take your time exploring the landscape
we have all the time in the world.
