The Doll of Society

On the table

Sat the doll of society

All primped and preened

For her yearly party

.

This year she wore

Bouncy hair

Big eyes

A small nose

And thin wrists

.

“Gorgeous”

“Stunning”

And “Superb”

She was called

.

After the party

Many people

Were dying to be her

And tried the best

To follow her lead

With some more dedicated to the cause

Then others

.

Primped and preened

The newly styled people

Went out to wow the world

With their new styles

.

But the maquillage

Was too heavy in some places

To permanent in others

.

Long years passed short praises

And the doll of society

Still sits on the table

Primping and preening for the party

But with different attributes

.

Meanwhile…

The people she inspired

Who walked the whole walk

Still hold the lasting effects

Of that past dazzling year

And are now seen

As products of another era
