There is a woman called Ruby Wax.
A more lovely woman you would not see.
She has cheeks of red which glow, and she hates them so.
Excitable she be and there are none funnier than she.
In earlier days she travelled around England to circumvent our inhabitants.
With Hit and Run, she met me.
Robert Lenkievitz’s model was I with breasts that you could anchor a ship on.
A study of St. Anthony found me naked on the BBC.
The next day, at my work, Boss was grinning like a jerk.
By lunchtime she’d made me coffee and then slyly asked me.
Yes, it was me.
Modelling naked on the TV.
Better though, I said, glowing rather red, was being interviewed by Ruby Wax.
I was immortalised on canvas and TV and that history could haunt me.
But proud, eventually, I would become; of my breasts, nipples and bum.
Meeting Ruby Wax who is a comedy best was the making of that assignment for me.
Afterwards, she went down to Longleat, for tea.
I went back to my bar, as the maid I really was, then I got fired because I’d posed naked for The Painter. See? One rule for one and another for me.
Now, I have Ruby Wax on my Facebook but she does not know that I was the body on which one of her episodes did close.
Thanks for reading.

Thanks for your time.
It took a year for this program to air – hence the two job reactions.
