Fashionable Fight

January 6, 2009
By Alexis Reinheimer, Middleburgh, NY

Desperate desire for improvement dances on faces of newborn adults,
Fashionably painted with bravery.
Exchausted, skinny soldiers march down injustice runways
Striking tired-but-seady poses,
Persistently pushing for vogue success.
Girls shed frustrating weight
To impress prejudiced dieticians.
Veterans try ludicrous outfits
To reach goals at red carpet's end.
Long-lasting lipstick wins the fight for national daughters
Working long shifts and high heels,
Clomping out ignorance.
