Ah, So That's What A Condom's For - Anna Russell

I remember the midwife when I was in labour,
An ugly old bitch with skin like crepe paper
'And where is daddy? ' she scornfully asks
'With his new girlfriend, smoking grass.'
Of course I don't say this out loud,
Telling myself it's because I'm too proud
But then I have to gently remind her
She's got her hand in my vagina.
'You're having his baby, why did you go? '
'Two black eyes and a broken nose.'
'Well if that was me I'd have used protection.'
'That's cos your face is your contraception.'
