Here he comes
in his skirt
without a
shirt
his chest begummed with
dirt
his salacious
grin
one that
wins
of course it do -
it's full of
sin...
Hooray!
Hooray!
The Forumshirans
say,
Even me
and I'm not
Gay.

sunlight fleeting
as the night washes in
over an unfamiliar grave
lost wandering to her death

sunlight disappearing
nightfall has fallen
if somewhat tautologically
lost wondering about what it might all mean
(i mean, actually wondering)

Well its not exactly following the play, more inspired and premise nicked from- so who gets magicked into liking whom ect is an open game. Twisted Evil  As is how it all resolves itself.

Mrs Figg wrote:''But when you got to a more mature age, when it took two friends to get you into your favourite dress and you spent hours trussing stuff up, pinning stuff down, or hoisting stuff back to where it once seemed perfectly happy to be all on its own'',

Shrugging what the fuck! it must be nice to be a man and let your gut hang out unabashed.


Sorry, Mrs Figg, this seems pretty tame and stuff I've heard my own Missus laugh about. (She makes me laugh sometimes - that's why I adore her. No airs or graces or delusions). Btw I don't think this Mrs Figg is his view of the real Mrs Figg. Petty's point is about 'aging' and how it can be seen both sadly and humouressly. He could apply it to men aging too with a few easy alterations. It's sad to age, but one can still laugh about it too. That's what I think is at the heart of Brittish humour btw - folks laughing at themselves. I respect you were confronted by the commentary, and fair enough, but I'm sure it was one of those 'immediate response' things. I've reacted the same way to things too. And, let's face it, we all tend to walk tightropes here in Forumshire, we live on the edge, but no harm is meant. While at my apologisting, I feel I need applaud (yet again) Petty's abilty to rile people! He seems to have a knack for it. I don't know what is about what he says, exactly, but he's definitely got it. It's a gift! Laughing

Thats pretty much what I was aiming and hoping to convey.
And that last bit all too true sadly- there comes that sad day in a mans life when he realises if he still wants to shave his face he is going to have to hold most of it stretched between forefinger and thumb, because pulling a razor down it otherwise will only pile all the skin into a heap of wrinkles somewhere under your chin!


'I feel I need applaud (yet again) Petty's abilty to rile people! He seems to have a knack for it. '- Orwell

Dont I just. Wish I knew how so I could at least be prepared for it when it happens. Mad

If any man I was in a relationship with had made those comments about me in real life, if any man had insinuated I was because of my 'maturity' I was in some way 'lesser' due to physical appearance it would have been the last time he got to open his trap in my presence. Insinuations, 'humourous' or not, about my physical appearance would instantly mean the end of the relationship. period.
women suffer all their lives the judgement of men, being judged for all your adult life by the way you look gets Beyond tedious. I for one have a zero tolerance policy. the comments may have been connected to my avatar, but the insinuations are still not acceptable.

That's the trouble with gifts. I have absolutely no idea why I was born with pristine never ending beauty, but it's a burden I must bear - and with as much good humour as I can muster. Sad

Honestly, I don't think that's what Petty's intention was, Julia. You took it that way, of course, and now I see why, but I think you've fallen for a misinterpretation. Petty's not like that. Once you've thought about it a bit more, I'm sure you'll see that. This takes nothing away from your offence. I know it's genuine. But Petty's innocence is genuine too.

I was in some way 'lesser' due to physical appearance - Mrs Figg

I think you are reading much more than I put in there.
The point of the passage is to make a humorous observation about the ageing process and how it physically changes us all- and to tie that with the Mrs Figgs characters (wrong) view of herself as passed her best days and lacking in the attention she wants from the person she expects it from- that's the beginning of the characters story arc- as things go on
Spoiler:
and conversely the Petty character just wants to be waited on and taken care of and to have no responsibility and
Spoiler:

Any notion it is about saying a woman is a lesser person because bits of her sag as she gets older is completely in your head, not mine.

Well it must be as it certainly wasnt in mine and I should know I wrote it.

Oddly you didnt object to Amaries all male staff of tight trouser wearers with shirts unbuttoned to their navel?
You dont seem to apply this pc critique to anyone elses writing either-what about the sexualised depiction of characters in Needlhole stories?
Or the entire contents of the Archet Bugle back catologue?
But as soon as I crack one joke about the aging process relating to a woman I am public enemy number one and out to condemn all of womanhood.

I dont get it.

I just wanted to write something fun people might enjoy and have their day brightened up by.
Ill say this for you, you certainly know how to drain all the joy and pleasure out of writing something.
