Mugget again

Oops.  Scratch that.  I had just checked the on-line OED and a couple of
other standard dictionaries and couldn't find any "female-genital related"
senses.  (That on-line glossary doesn't give specific glosses.)  But then I
tried the Spears _Dictionary of Slang and Euphemism_, and sure enough there
it was:

MUGGET 'a false vulva with a pubic wig worn by male homosexual prostitutes
in drag'

--not to be confused with MERKIN, of course.  In any case, 'mugget' would
not have been a good choice for the poem.
