Vogue Valentine

The fashion and the glamor we see
Which is most of movies and TV
The flaunting of great luxury
The yachts and the complacency
The woman fetishized by men
The man infantilized by women
All these we could see
In the frescoes of Pompeii
And the ruins of the coliseum
The fine jewelry in the museum
The skill of the craftsmen
Outdistancing the taste
Of the buyers and the sellers
Their conspicuous waste
Their lives of paste
