The slightest, lightest of strained strips

tightest, stretch-wrapped round narrow hips.

Slender legs emerge brown and long

like arrows from a quiver.


Her steps small, though she's tall.

Her guard can't fall, reveal all.

And though the breeze starts to tease

above her knees, no-one sees.


Shyly down the town's frown crowd street,

Brushing, blushing tries to stay discreet,

Passers-by pass judgements

about what's right & wrong

with the glares and stares that they give her.


Her steps small, though she's tall.

Her guard can't fall, reveal all.

And though the breeze starts to tease

above her knees, no-one sees.


Steps Small  (Autoexhibit)

Commentary
There are of course many different ways to look at things but usually we don't see all of them......

How about this for a rhyme system? AAXY for the verses, where lines 1 & 2 of any given verse rhyme with each other, but then all 3 of the 3
rd lines of the 3 different verses rhyme with each other and all 3 of the 4th lines of the 3 different verses rhyme with each other.  Meanwhile the chorus rhyme system is CCCC, DDDD.  For the middle section, I thought I wouldn’t work quite so hard with the rhymes!

Peel off those years

of bleak and brutal repression

and uncover who you are.


No more the ugly duckling.

Join with the swans in flight

& Cinderella leaves her scullery for light.


Shuffle delicately up the stairs

thighs clasped as hands pressed

in impassioned prayers.

Know below the magnetised throng

hope height and gaze will deliver.


Her steps small, though she's tall.

Her guard can't fall, reveal all.

And though the breeze starts to tease

above her knees, no-one sees.

Her steps small, though she's tall.

Her guard can't fall, reveal all.

And as the breeze starts to tease

above her knees, someone sees.
