What is the Meaning of Audacity?


One who has the quality
Of what we call audacity
Is someone who shows an intrepid nerve,
But also it is understood
That such a one is one who could
Also be likely not to observe

What we call normal constraints
Imperious and less a saint
Defiant in their blatant apathy
For social convention and
Etiquette you understand
Like someone who wears pyjamas to tea...

And whilst this slight audacious act
Might seem tame observe the fact
That the queen herself beheld the sight
At her dining table when
My audacious and pert friend
Was there strictly by his own invite!
