Pale and out the sun
was once the thing,
but to sport a tan
is now to be 'in'.
The pale weren't like the ruddyish rest
who were the peasants, half-undressed,
in the fields and, no, not at their best.
Your glass is half-empty,
my glass is half-full.
We've got the polar-balance, girl,
though your end icy and miserable.
