The double life of Mrs Robinson

I was given this list of words and phrases to turn into a poem:

  • Burlesque
  • The prostate
  • Twilight
  • Dusk
  • RSPB
  • Play it by ear
  • Mrs Robinson
  • Fimbles
  • Mulled
  • Goundhog day

This is what I did with them:

The Double life of Mrs Robinson

Doting wife and mother by day

Wild temptress and diva by night

She lead a double life

A transformation in the absence of light

She paid the bills

With a RSPB monthly wage

But in the book of her life

This was but only the first page

Morning to noon

She experienced groundhog day

She mulled over her life

She wished the hours away

Watching fimbles with the kids

Drinking tea with the girls

Forever following protocol

No diamonds, no sparkles, no pearls

Twilight was when she came alive

When she realised all her dreams

For dusk was the time of day

She transofrmed into a burlesque queen

The club in which she danced

Was called The Prostate

Nobody could answer why

Not good for a first date

People cheered and they clapped

When she danced her head was clear

Was it wrong this life she lead?

Mrs Robinson decided to play it by ear
