Stone Cold Venus

Venus de Milo with Drawers, 1936, Salvador Dali
©Susan Noyes Anderson


Greet the One all creation adores,
crowned the goad-ess of weddings and wars.
She is immortalized
as a feast for men's eyes,
but she'll not let them get in her drawers!

(Pardon me, friends. I was taught that a limerick 
should be either humorous or slightly risque.
I did do my best to keep this one in good taste!)

Ok..I get it! Very cute! When I'm working I have to check supplies in the operating room. When I have to check the anesthesiologists carts I always ask if I can check their "drawers"..I get the same reaction as your poem!
