    This was originally for a class assignment but i figured it wasnt half bad haha

    Dont ask me what to wear
    when my mind is so askew
    dont think of your appearance
    like a life or death issue
    does this shirt match these pants ?
    does this hat match this shoe?
    how about how do we stop violence?
    or do the children all have food?
    How about is our country in turmoil?
    or is our government suited right?
    will we ever have enough oil?
    can the soldiers end thier fight?
    tank tops flip flops sweaters whatever
    watch the new, read a book
    pay attention to deadly weather
    just know im pondering other things
    and am in no way inclined to care
    about your denim jacket and toe rings
    so dont ask me what to wear.

    In the scheme of things, fashion just doesn't rank. Thank you for sharing this with us poetess, it's on point.
