• She said
    Almost emphatically
    That she was a "hooker"

    They looked at her
    In confusion, wondering
    As to how she ended up

    In such a profession

    She blinked, unamused
    By the question, as she
    Wasn't what she was

    Not in the sense
    That they were thinking of

    She reminded them that,
    The French word for "hook"
    Was "crochet"

    It took slightly less energy
    To say "hooker" than it did to say

    She stated simply
    That she was a hooker
    And it had nothing to do with

    The oldest proffesion
    Instead it had more to do
    With yarncrafts.
