Thigh Gap Vogue

Vogue announced the latest trend

Caused many a woman to seek to mend

Those curvy hips, those narrow lips

The implantation of silicone tits

When Cosmopolitan cries “thighs!”

Every thunder-bred woman dies

As plastic surgeons, cosmetologists


Brandish their knives, syringes to slice away the excess flesh

So that the patriarchy can fit into that gap

A triangular focus, a narrowing view

No longer beautiful but “fixed up” for you

Because beauty is determined by editorial boards

Those who pick a fancy every few years or more

Oh Twiggy, Oh Marilyn, Oh Naomi, Oh Moss

Oh who the fuck gives a toss

Sadly many do, many will and continue to

As long as we let Hollywood & Co

Determine the beauty of a woman when she is so much more
