Women In Magazines

The road to success is always under construction. It is a progressive course, not an end in itself.

Man! How I hate women in magazine’s-

I look at them
and want not to look away
For the monkey in my mind will stray
Back to thoughts of their beauty-
That make many a lady moody.

Man! how I hate women in magazine’s-

Smiling with their perfectly white teeth
Confident in their unblemished skin-

With not a pimple on their cheeks
Or a wrinkle beside their eyes.

Man! how I hate women in magazine’s-

Looking perfect in a world imperfect.
Making many a lady aware of the defects,

They possess decreasing their beauty
So they show themselves not in society-

Freckles in the face
Seen as a disgrace.

A pimple on the chin
Will never aid you win
The heart of a man.

Man! how I hate women in magazine’s-

Hiding themselves behind makeup
To mask their freckles
And their wrinkles
And their pimples

But never ever their dimples.
