Rockin’ That Dress

 

Celebrities are eager to pretend
That, if she wears the right expensive dress,
Michelle Obama’s beautiful. The less
Beauty they really see, the more they tend
To celebrate. A buffalo’s rear end,
She wins the praise of all who won’t confess
The truth about the godforsaken mess
She actually presents. How they offend
Against all that is honest and sincere!
It is a deficit time can’t repair.
The lie they dare to tell won’t disappear
With the mere exhalation of their air.
But wait! What’s this? Melania is here!
Even the Saudis cannot help but stare.
