Oh come on menstruation,

I know you’re on your way.

Enough with all the bullshit

No more warning signs okay?


I don’t need a goddamn pimple

Or a dose of teary grumps,

No more bloat or weird food cravings,

No more headaches or boob lumps.


I know when you are coming –

You don’t need to arrogate

My life for weeks you nasty mole

I mean I know the bloody date.


I have a calendar of course

And it’s been twenty five odd years.

Of monthly bloody dates,

So make your extras disappear.
