The Thin Perfect

They raffle off their food

to the girls at our table

And nothing will sway them

being hungry is a small price to pay

for beauty

the picture has been

planted in their head

the media’s image of perfect

Now to them

a better life comes with perfect

when they are skinny

they will be smarter

when they are skinny

they will be popular

when they are skinny

they will be perfect

but the rest of us see

through this perfect facáde

we know what will actually happen

when they are  skinny
