She sits upon a low brick wall,
at first I think she is alone;
then see her chatting on a phone
and wondered, did she make the call.
She's unaware of me at all.
Should I draw her attention to
the fact the wall's been painted blue;
that when she stands, she'll surely find
she'll have a pretty blue behind.
My sign fell down, the paint's quite new.
