Tattoos in The ReferenceLibrary.

Lydia oh Lydia

Have you met Lydia?

Lydia, the tattooed Lady?

She has eyes that men adore so, and a torso even more so…

Groucho Marx sang that in the film At the Circus and later in his live appearances.

But I don’t know who wrote it.

I should.

Hang on.

Wikipedia, Wikipedia, Wikipedia…

Do you remember having to go to the reference library?

The last time I went it was to learn about bread rationing…

Wikipedia, Wikipedia…

Yip Harburg and Harold Arlen.

I’m not sure I’m gonna remember that…..

Yip and Harold? Harburg and Arlen?

I’ll try.


I live in the same house as Lydia, she just walked past. She has no perfume, but her tattoos precede her.

I try not to think about this as I want to become a great writer, and pictures are a distraction.

Enough said.

That’ll do.
