Girls Who Read, A Poem by Mark Grist

This video poem was sent to me recently. I don’t usually share videos on this forum, although not only did I find it entirely refreshing, but thought it worthwhile enough to share with all those girls out there like me, who may one day be found buried underneath a pile of books while others are found underneath a pile of make-up and clothes.

    Thank you for sharing this. And long live the bibliosexual!

        Yeah…

        “Not tonight, darling. I’ve to finish this book.”

          “But she’d still be sweet and she’d still be flirty,
          ’cause she loves the classics
          and they’re pretty dirty.
          And that means late at night she’ll always have me in a stupor,
          as we re‐enact the raunchy bits from the works of Jilly Cooper.”

            Oh, bummer. You preemptively ruined the second half of my comment which would be in the lines of, “I’m glad, my love, to see you got rid of that nasty headache.”

            “I want a girl who reads.
            A girl whose eyes will analyze the menu over dinner,
            who’ll use what she learns to kick my arse in arguments so she always ends the winner.”
            🙂

    Nothing was lost though as my attempt at playing the devil’s advocate was a lost case from the very beginning.

    “she always ends the winner”
    In this case, it was a humiliating defeat as all she had to do was quote the video poem that was supposed to be commented here…
