Look Ma, No Hands
Author: Webster


Where do the teenagers get their fashions?
With everyone else they seem to be clashin'.
The twenties brought in style the dropped waist;
Now the dropped crotch is in good taste.
Tight sweaters were the rage in the forties,
Extra large tents are now considered jaunty.
A farmer wore jeans for their work as a digger;
Today with worldly teens, jeans are d'rigeur.
While I don't suggest they should all be frumps,
Why do they have to wear them all at once?

some of these clothes kill me...but everytime I turn around it seems like my 6 years old starts a new fashion...she'll come through thinking she gonna where what she put's on..she doesn't care...she'll come through with a stripped shirt and a flowered skirt...I nearly die...but next I know I look up and see some teen that seems to have her taste in fashion that she good poem
