PHOTO PROMPT © Sandra Crook
There is always one who stands out,
One who insists on being different,
Which would be fine if it were tasteful,
But it never is,
It’s always tacky, brassy, common,
Does changing gender really mean he has to lose all sense of good taste?
He believes he is a woman inside,
He is nothing like a woman on the outside,
He lacks the softness, the fragility, the beauty,
He is a grotesque parody of a woman,
He tries hard to achieve a look that will always evade him,
I try hard to hide my embarrassment.
That one is my dad.
