Lipstick at Dawn

Lipstick at Dawn 💄

 

Sexology power games

Get us in a muddle

As we struggle 

To decide

Who’s on top

 

Corporate big cats

In their hall

Look blindly down 

At the chicks

In the mall

Unaware 

Of the power

They hold

As they remould it

 

Smooth as cheese

The chicks see it all

No credit given

As they silently

Change

The texture

 

Behind the mascara

They don’t stare or glare

At what needs eroded

The subtle approach manipulates

 

In between the seams and circles

Of confusion

Hides the delusion

Of who’s on top

 

Their anchor is needed

To harbour change

A change

That will bring plenty

In this time of austerity. 🙏
