Poem: 'A Ode to Them' & Quirky Video



"If you're waiting for the Perfect Time, there is no time more Perfect,
than Now."
ajl


An Ode To Them

The Land of the Beautiful People
The City that Sparkles
The Shine that Blinds
To what's Important
Yet it doesn't matter
You Look Good
You're One Hell of a Find
You're More than Accepted
They want to be near You
They want to be like You
They want to be You.
You don't have to do a Thing
Other than think of what to wear
Adorn yourself with Bling.

You don't have to be Polite
You don't have to Share
You don't have to be compassionate
You only have to remember
To fix your hair.
You're free to be Selfish
You're free to be Vain
You're desperate to be seen in the Right Places
Beaming White Teeth
Next to all the Right Faces.




The Glory is Great
But the Cash is better
A Snapshot, A Newspaper Spread
But where's the contracted Letter?
Here this Hour
Gone the Next
Another Ten to take your place
Prepare to Fall
Guess you're not so special after all.

I was going to tell you what inspired me to write this ditty today, but I live in Sydney. Do I really need to say more?


I won't make a habit of posting videos like this, but it's nice to mix it up and keeps it the vein of this post. Nothing too deep. I didn't actually know they could do this. I was quite amazed.



It made me laugh and that's always a good thing.
