People Watching

When your feet hurt from walking through galleries
and your mind is full of new images

You must make your way through the V&A
to the refreshment rooms
for a pot of Darjeeling (first flush)
You can rest under the great, glowing chandeliers
and listen to the grand piano

Surrounded by the intelligentsia of London
eating slices of banana cake.

A word of warning:
if you sit and contemplate
the beautiful curves of the young ladies
supporting the fireplace

You feel less inclined to eat the chocolate mousse.

The curves are Rubenesque. Nothing wrong with that!

That place really is insanely beautiful.

I think the ladies look lovely. I'd be very happy to look like that!
