    For the glamour girls
    with the fake Asian curls
    Nails that are fake
    And cause infection when
    they break
    High maintenance gals
    that don't have any pals

    For the glamour girls
    Who never cook
    But always get a second look
    Who base their worth
    on the price of their clothes
    And are quick to turn up
    their dainty nose...
    at brother's whose collars
    are blue
    but they are not bluer than
    you
    You out priced yourself
    and now you sit on a shelf
    out of reach to those who
    would dare
    and out of mind to those
    who would care

    For the glamour girls who
    have not built a solid foundation
    to contribute to this nation
    but instead cast doubt without
    hesitation, about social injustice
    and racial pride, as they brush
    their long tresses aside
    trying hard to be anything
    other than who they are
    and won't ride anything later
    than a 2002 car.
    Diamonds they crave, and men
    they enslave
    Lots of style but no substance
    when once
    they were just like us

    Ordinary women , doing extraordinary
    things
    Not worrying about diamond rings
    Raising our babies to be strong
    hearted and true
    and warning our boys to stay
    away from wannabee golddigger's
    like you.

    For the glamour girls
    I mourn your soul
    Cause there will be nothing
    left to sustain you when
    you grow old!

    I know too many girls like those you speak of. Great piece. I really enjoyed the read.
    I love the entire poem, but this part sticks in my mind the most:You out priced yourself
    and now you sit on a shelf
    out of reach to those who
    would dare
    and out of mind to those
    who would care
