local authority homed kid

dad did stuff with the navy

somewhere overseas

& mum spent the money

any way she pleased

as Ace grew up loving Bowie

& the metal thing

she knew she needed a man

until then any boy would do

learning like all project girls early

the main thing she offered was screw

the boys they loved her easy

they came & they went

giving babies now& then

saying thank you to the government

in her twenties she found out

solved the game

found her real love

in the arms of a woman

& life was never the same

she grew she flowered

she loved to learn

to live

to care
