Glamour Versus Comfort

by Phronesus Disegno

Age Group: Adult



Tonight's the night
I'm going out
I'll be the perfect gem!
I'll see my friends
For the hundreth time;
I'm glad for friends like them.

Lost in glamour
To look my best
Whatever should I wear?
Colored contacts
Sparkling gems
And falsely colored hair...

A sculpted look
With clothing pressed
Nothing feels like it fits!
It's painted-on
can't even breathe
This glamour thing's the sh*ts.

I do not feel
The way I'll look
But honey, I'll look GOOD!
It's so much work
And so much time
I don't feel like I should...

No wonder now
The best dressed ones
Can sometimes be such b*tches!
Their smile hides
The fact that they
Can't scratch it where it itches...

To act demure
And be polite
One playful little wink
But what they'll get
Ain't what they "see",
No, not at all, I think.

My friends like me
For who I am
I'm glad for friends like them
They've seen me at
My very worst
And still think I'm a gem...

I've changed my mind
Won't do a thing
Just sneakers, t-shirt, jeans
I'll wear a cap
And they won't mind
Now THAT's what comfort means!

I wonder now,
A passing thought
Almost ashamed to mention...
If I dress up,
And they do not,
Then I'LL get all the attention! ;-)

My mind goes 'round,
And 'round and 'round,
This conflict never ends.
Can't blame myself
For all these thoughts,
I think I'll blame my friends.

Tonight's the night
I'm going out
I'll be the perfect gem!
I'll blame my friends
For the hundreth time;
I'm glad for friends like them.




Author's Notes: Nonsensical humor about random thoughts.

Now was it that movie called, "The Craft" where one scene they're reading a book that says "glamour" is among the oldest forms of Magick? Well, it would make sense if it's the case.

But if the "times three" guideline is true, then what comes back times three if one is glamorous for a night, only for an admirer to later discover that what was underneath was misrepresented?

Just more random thoughts. I'm just fretting about a formal occasion I will be attending in the near future. I don't mind dressing up. I just mind "having" to dress up. Thanks for listening. Hopefully you found the poem amusing.
