Pretty Ladies

Pretty ladies with a handsome man

Flock and squawk nonsensically

Are silly and full of mindless fantasies

The man is powerful

He can do anything

 

Beautiful lady with a crowd of men

She knows what she’s doing

She is a slut

She is attention-craving

She is dependent

 

Pretty ladies with a handsome man

The man brags to his mates over beer

Talks bodies and hair, full of sexual fantasies

The ladies are forgotten

Nothing but babes to him

 

Beautiful lady with a crowd of men

Cries herself to sleep

She is intelligent

She craves respect

She pushes past the jealous

Judging

Looks

 

Her lipstick smudges off envelopes

Sealing information that will save the world
