I'm pretty, right?

…No?

Well, let me eat less
And tan more,
Burn my hair to make it straight
And spend all my money on clothes.

[Am I pretty now?]
Theme 57 of 100 Themes Challenge.

They ruin themselves in the process, but at least they look pretty.

This is unfortunately true. Then bluntness in how you write this poem makes you think.

They may ruin themselves, but I see no beauty. Lovely poem.

So who are you angry at... the pretty people or yourself?

Am I funny, sure, to someone I'm funny.

I think I'm angry at the pretty people. But usually when I say I'm angry at someone I mean myself.

P.S. Your avatar made me smile.

I believe that an adequate companion poem to this one would be "Barbie Doll," by Marge Piercy. (Except that, you know, Marge Piercy is probably a better writer.)

Its come down to being materialistic. best way to get people to buy things is to tell them it won't make you look so fat! try telling that to a young self conscious girl who is nervous about how the dress she wears on the first day of school looks, and the boys who tease her about how it makes her look like a circus tent when she barely weighs over 110. (this is just a statement not personal to me in anyway.) let her think that she is fat and she will buy everything to make her fit the society norms to look pretty.

Girls will do just about anything to look "pretty" when it doesn't even have to be that way

And the 100 themes challenge is a 100 random words/phrases that you use to create a work of art. You can go in any order you want. It's a lot of fun.
