Advantaged girl

by Kim (writer), Los Angeles, July 21, 2010

Contemplative live scenario in everyday life

Advantaged girl...just because you stare

with a lowered scowl in your eyes

All know your disguise

Mere fluff

Full of immaturity & lies

No one cares

That your body language dares

There’s nothing to back it

Except your bogus privileged packet

That brought you into this world

It’s not really a gift, you know

Don’t look at your nose

As if one in your presence is a so & so

Stop your whiffs and stiffs

Trying to put others down

With a huff and a frown

You’re only emanating the image of a clown

Advantaged girl

You strut

You putt

Your actions reveal

The real deal

Just an advantaged girl

In your world

Of puff and pretense

That makes no sense

In reality and with humanity

You’re a far cry

Proving nothing with your haughty manner

Should we shiver and clamor?

Here’s one certain fact

You have no pride, class or tact

Just an advantaged girl

Accustomed to others cowering under your gaze

I’m not fazed

Nor amazed...

At the stupidity you raise

In some circles you may be the belle

Snobbishly gawking down

On all those you’re around

But time will tell

Your actions don’t sell

Nor mean a thing

In the true realm of things

Advantaged girl

Your song’s been sung

As old as dung

Advantaged girl

The wise know where you come from

And just because you lower your eyes

All know your pitiful disguise

Mere fluff

Full of immaturity & lies
