Wisdom of Paint-on Legs

43 3 0

When silk and nylon have gone to war
you can still count on paint.
Look for it in the cosmetics department.
In this world, your legs are what get you places.
A good gloss opens doors.
Beware the bold hand—
fingers are harder to bedazzle than the eyes.
Lay it on in licks not scabs.
Take it right up the cheeks
for when your dress rides up.
Remember to paint the seams.
They're what sells it.
