Dear Ladies as you sip your tea

and eat your cake with little forks

and wipe your lips

before you talk,

I’d like to send a little letter

to say I’m sorry

for my faux pas.


Dear ladies in your scarlet hats

having fun

and refined chats

I’m sending you this little note

to apologise for what I wrote.

I’ve seen you in your 

purple dresses

with feathered hats and

silver tresses

eating lunch in a pub garden

laughing, joking, having fun

Not drunk, not loud, not even one

of you.


Dear ladies in your pretty purple

with your red hats

I apologise for linking you

with someone who

was not a lady.

And did not wear purple

With a red hat.
