If you recall, I posted about Poetic Penises for 'P' Day. The poem I wrote there was half of a project I completed for an upper level literature class in university. I fell even more in love with the discipline after taking that class and realising the open-minded, limitless potential of English as an academic field. I presented both "The Penis" and "Vaginas", under the collective title Dispelling the Taboo, at the Senior Students Colloquium the year I wrote them, complete with full colour images in a timed PowerPoint presentation.
"Vaginas" is influenced by Libby Scheier's poetic masterpiece "Penises, 1" and after no further ado, here it is:
They're ugly cuz they're wrinkly.
Embrace wrinkles. They add character!
They're repulsive because they smell & taste like fish.
Fish is good for you. Eat it!
They should remain closed
until they are ready to procreate.
just a second.
Why am I referring to the glorious
are beautiful flowers
swelling into bloom
with each caress.
