Liner Notes: 

The family member I wrote this about enjoyed it. The bridge was 100% real and happened. Lol For those unfamilar with a 'fajita" in the bridge, it's a Spanish word and a meat dish in Mexican cuisine.

Thanks Corinne for hosting and thanks as well for the theme & extra time.

Cheers

Skirmish theme = Beloved - "Write about a beloved partner, wife, hubbie, boyfriend, pet, grandma. You can make it tender and loving, or silly and fun, or if you've been jilted by said beloved!"

Lyrics: 

Beloved Little Pistol

Our grandma is wild
She rides a motorbike
They call her the latin spitfire
Few her age are alike
Outspoken, eccentric
She ain't into no home
Where old folks are put out to pasture
Yeah that's not in her genome

She's our beloved little pistol
A Caribbean queen
Drinks a glass of wine a day
And can often cause a scene
See she don't give a hoot
After all these years
She's a freebird to most
And at times will down some beers

Grandma is grandma
Ooh let there be no doubt
And if ya try to control her
She'll respond with a shout
Artistic, expressive
Creative is her thing
She likes to draw pictures of nude men
Hoping someday for a fling

She's our beloved little pistol
A Caribbean queen
Drinks a glass of wine a day
And can often cause a scene
See she don't give a hoot
After all these years
She's a freebird to most
And at times will down some beers

Now I'll never forget the text message she got
Solicitin sex, like she was gonna be bought
She instantly replied I don't need a whore
At 94 I'm not a fajita, now get a life that is yours

She's our beloved little pistol
A Caribbean queen
Drinks a glass of wine a day
And can often cause a scene
See she don't give a hoot
After all these years
She's a freebird to most
And at times will down some beers

To use the word "genome" in a lyric is brilliant. She sounds like something else! Great portraiture

Love it. I want to meet your grandma. Such great descriptions of her habits and her personality. When (if) I’m 94 I want to be still that alive.
