Catwalk Bitches Must Die!

Begone Oh Lofty Wenches to your Catwalks in the sky
Begone and take thine graven image from before mine eye
Stalk your way to paradise on six- inch, spike- heeled shoes
And prattle to the Maker about fashion's changing hues

Dent His ear eternally with gossip of rich men
Force Him to endure your endless tripe, and then
Reduce Him to a jellied heap with just one awesome stare
Before you slip your tops off to bombard Him with your 'pair'

Not those which He did give you, Oh No, dare I should jest!
But ones which have been tweaked and puffed, deflated and the rest
Show cheekbones which do arch, as none should ever do
Then divest of all your clothing just to see what else is new

To strut, to stalk, to pout, to pose, all this is everlasting
Until such day as we can be, of you, completely blasting
Get off our screens, out of our faces, begone before our eyes
To torture not imperfect souls, from heaven's fluffy skies

Depart at once, unto the all- eternal, divine- divide
And get thee hence from here before my lustful, desperate eyes
I wish to be as graceful, as tall and slim as thee
Yet as I can't, not now or ever, I wish thou not to be

I'd rather live a giant, in a world where all are small
Than live my life a dwarf, with all around me tall
And worst of all, false virgins reign, visions of ideals
To which I never will attain, a midget in high heels!

I loved it! It actually had me smiling like a fool at the computer screen.

Excellent - hits the nail right on the head! Though I do like seeing some good models (and tickle my baser instincts in the process) I do feel that the model scene is overrated! Beauty and wellbeing goes deeper than some cosmetic put on and smoke/drug-frazzled and money-numbed innanimate creatures struting down the ramp! Bravo for putting it down so nicely!
melody
veeeeeeryyyyyyyyyy coooooooool and true
Jen

YES! Very true. Catwalk people are EEEEEEVVVVVVVIIIIIIILLLLLLL. They are intimidating and fake. They all must die! (just kidding. although some at least should get hurt or permanentaly scarred on their faces or something. I'm so mean. *grins*)

that poem was genious i loved it. its definetely true. those models are just fake from head to toes anyways i dont see why people are so obsessed with them. and alot of young girls feel they have to look like those models and can get themselves into alot of health problems with like anorexia and stuff
