    That's exactly what I'm trying to say, MHenry! I'm glad to know my poem can speak out to you and hopefully everyone in the way you read and saw it. Thank you for the feedback~ ^_^

    Hi, I am a firm believer that beauty comes from the inside, and you make a strong case, Wingless One, for inner beauty with your well-written and sardonic swipe at the plasticity of men and women, and only those who can afford the price of that false beauty.

    The answer to 'what's he doing with her?' is 'he sees what you can't see.'

    This theme of artificially constructed allure has come up in your work before, One Wingless Angel. Here you place it centre stage, and dissect it with savvy irony and skilful turns of phrase.

    started a topic Plastic Perfection

    Plastic Perfection

    If you weren't a lucky one to be born with it,
    You can always buy up a few ornaments;
    Avaliable at a local doctor to imperfect kids,
    And the celebrities who think they really need it-

    In order to feel pretty and sexual-
    You need to be fixed by a professional-
    Becoming silicone is the only way for
    You to feel more beautiful:

    Staying young forever, trying to keep together-
    Watch as your silky soft skin turns into bruised leather-
    But don't you worry about it because you
    Can buy yourself some plastic-
    Remember that Nobody will
    Love you if you become unattractive.

    ​​​Boys love girls with confidence-
    ​​​​​​Its not expectation, but common sense-
    All you'll need is a few condiments,
    And a few thousand dollars for a couple compliments.

    You fancy it a waste, for plastic perfection is beyond your tastes-
    But always know you can cut and paste,
    Whenever everybody leaves you because if
    Your face.

    Staying young forever, trying to keep together-
    Watch as your silky soft skin turns into bruised leather-
    But don't you worry about it because you
    Can buy yourself some plastic-
    Remember that Nobody will
    Love you if you become unattractive.
