Face Paint

Have you ever stopped to think,

The similarities between

Face paint and makeup?

That most likely,

The capitalist economy thought,

Our face paint sales are in the red,

How can we rename

And repackage this

for a sales boost,

who can we manipulate?

Not enough men

are into this newfangled “sports team” support concept.

Women! Ah!

Women need to look fertile!

And fertile is clown,

That’s what men want!

And that is my hypothesis

About the birth of makeup.

The epilogue to this history

Is the women,

Who own the makeup,

Wearing it only in the style,

That boosts them,

Makes them happy,

If they wear it at all.

No men dictate it.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
