    dotsSong / The Thinnest Thindots
    -------------------------------------------


    Pasted faces
    Fear stained smiles
    Just to get noticed
    You walk miles and miles
    Eat til your sick
    Slim down the thin
    Cos only the thinnest thin will win.

    Beauty is in the eye of a magazine editor
    Shot through a lens
    That bends and distorts
    The image of reality
    Just to line the pockets
    Of fat cats, as they walk.
    And what makes it funny…
    Is that we all bend eloquently to the legacy
    Of a little piece of minted paper.

    Mile high legs
    Foot long heels
    Just to make a stand
    What exactly do you stand for?
    Teenagers aspire
    Conspire with food
    Cos they know too, only the thinnest thin will win.

    Beauty is in the eye of a magazine editor
    Shot through a lens
    That bends and distorts
    The image of reality
    Just to line the pockets
    Of fat cats, as they walk
    And what makes it funny
    Is that we all bend eloquently to the legacy
    Of a little piece of minted paper.

    And they starve for the love and affection of a nation
    That doesn’t give a hoot about who they are
    One centre spread
    Starts an ideal you must live up to
    One middle age spread
    And you’re chip wrapping baby!

    Beauty is in the eye of a magazine editor
    Shot through a lens
    That bends and distorts
    The image of reality
    Just to line the pockets
    Of fat cats, as they walk
    And what makes it funny
    Is that we all bend eloquently to the legacy
    Of a little piece of minted paper.

    Cos we too are taught to believe that only the thinnest thin will win.

      I agree with the sentiment here. I was at least headed for an eating disorder when I was younger, and I think that skinny models and actresses made me feel inadequate. You know on one level that they've been airbrushed to death, and they don't even look like that, but you read that some woman is 5'10'' and 110 lbs. Seriously, I just don't know how people can sleep at night when they glorify looking like that. I believe that people can be naturally thin (I am to a degree), but there's a point when I don't believe that you could be that thin and eat normally. It's funny that girls want to be thin, but most men would rather date J-Lo over Kate Moss.

      despite a few spelling mistakes the poem is good enough to make me say its rhyming is really good "Beauty is in the eye of a magazine editor" i like that metaphor i wish i could hear this song sang.Are these lyrics for a song?

      Yeah, I'm not really into the wholw anerexia look for anyone, its really digusting to see a bony super model,m especially cause some are so pretty. They look like they just came from some 3rd world country where only rice cakes exist. But I'm not saying I promote the plus sized models either, I'm just saying, is all.

      exceptional piece here! and this one is so true of the worlds perception of how we are suppose to look in appearance.

    Beauty is in the eye of a magazine editor
    Shot through a lens
    That bends and distorts
    The image of reality
    Just to line the pockets
    Of fat cats, as they walk

    it's sad to have to live up to this kind of pressure.

    a really good write. be proud of yourself for this one.
