    ALL GUSSIED UP
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    All gussied up...
    Word awaits the war
    Pretty *** men prepare to fight
    Cause ugly goes to the bone

    All gussied up...
    Comfy as death unannounced
    No conscious is stirring
    While sons are preparing
    No hope amidst growing doubt

    All gussied up...
    RSVP's aren't forthcoming
    Bang the drum slowly
    Trump up their fears
    Bush- them with lawn garden glare

    All hussies stuck...
    Hurried love ain't worth the trouble
    New mandates are brewing
    Economies stewing
    All gussied up ~

    interesting piece

    thought-provoking piece...just a suggestion but with that great title more could be done with the dressing imagery that "all gussied up" suggests.

    thx for your response to my work,
    seawoman

    NO SPIN ZONE

    Dear Seawoman,

    As much as I respect your work, and invite your valuable artistic critisim, this is a no-no-know spin zone. If you want imagery then I would suggest that you watch CNN.
