3 Women of the Desert

3 women of the desert, to learning much inclined, Went to see the queen (though all of them were blind) That each by observation, might satisfy her mind And find the source of youthful skin that came so hard to find She is very soft said one, with her hand the queen’s skin felt She is fragrant as a garden said the other as she smelt Silly ladies anyone can see, said the final one with glee She’s found that creamy nectar that’s within reach of you and me … inspired by ‘The Blind Men and the Elephant’ by Saxe…and body butter.
