POET BOB’S VIEWS ON FASHION FREAKS
THE young kids of today mate they just take the trick
The clothes that they wear are so tight and so slick.
Short skirts and small tank tops they look such a sight
Boob tubes and long leggins, all so bloody tight.
Tops that are slinky they creep up when they bend
And jeans cut so low you can see their rear end.
They wear hats back to front or sometimes to the side
They call it fashion but do they have no pride.
The boys’ baggy pants all loose and real slack
Their undies hang out down to their bum crack.
They must not own a mirror to check when they dress
Nose rings and tongues studs they look such a mess.
You can’t tell if they’re female or a bloke with long hair.
There are ways of checking but I don’t want to go there.
No respect for their elders and it’s so easy to see!
They just follow the fashions of what’s on TV.
We never did that when we were all young
Studs in their cheeks and rings though their tongue.
Tattoos all over on their back or their neck
They look like some creature from out of Star Trek.
Young girls with tank tops all loose at the side
No modesty here they just don’t try to hide
Their boobs from the public it’s all there to see
Heart attack territory for an old bloke like me.
There are girls that are pregnant; their clothes bring on frowns
What ever happened to maternity gowns?
Perhaps I’m old fashioned with what they should wear
But I really can’t help but to stop and just stare.
The grandkids tell me it’s fashion and to get with the trend
But try as I might I just can’t comprehend
Why showing your privates would gain any fame.
I really think it’s all just one big poser game.
But now everyone's different and unique so they say
Some follow trends and some go their own way.
Individual people by birth, name or fame
But I don’t think they realise they all look the same.
