Being a hippy woman, I rather enjoyed this …

These hips are big hips
they need space to
move around in.
They don’t fit into
little petty places.
These hips
are free hips
they don’t like to be held back.
These hips have never been enslaved
they go where they want to go,
they do what they want to do.
These hips are mighty hips.
These hips are magic hips.
I have known them
to put a spell on a man and
spin him like a top!
