365 Poems in 365 Days: Curses

Because I'm trying to write a lot of poems, rejecting an idea is not an option* for me. Because of this number 56 links Alfred Lord Tennyson and menstruation. Oh yes.

A fellow student went to a girl's school
Where they quoted from Tennyson's The Lady of Shalott
'The curse is come upon me' when their menstrual
Periods began and this happened quite a lot


* Rejecting a poem is, but you have to try first. Also sometimes reworking, or recycling bits of rejects does work.
