The Librarian



That madam librarian you were looking for
just left the building –

I refuse
to categorize my men by
the dewy decimal system, that
would mean having to sort and shelve-

I prefer instead
to cherish a good read
then donate the hardback
to charity –

  1. My knowledge and interest in men not keen,

    Although, sometimes they do make good buddies;

    Miss, I like your glasses, can you show me, please,

    The right section to find Women's Studies?
