Mannequins Made from Clay

by FuchsiaFestival!

Deary, you stole
your lips from a mannequin,
and you look strange.
Dressing up as an ideal figure
does not create a kite for your soul.

When birds laugh at your stature,
how you're trying to mimic their height,
the remnants of your disguise
will fall asunder on
the devil's armchair.

Your rose-colored ways
will mesh with glass windows,
until they are defied by nature,
never to last too long.

Oh, I imagine highly stylized shop windows - statuesque marvels in uncomfortable positions draped in the most expensive, fashionable frocks ladies only wear once... love what you're doing with words, my friend! Cheers, Mary Ann

A well written poem with a good message delivered by sharp class
