Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


Fashion cover girls these days make me sick,
All haggard and thin, they look like a stick.
Picking on South Beach diets to trim flat waists         
Do they have a life with surgical pastes?
We XL women may not be limelight’s bet
But golly, we're blue chips in the market.
Guy buddies say they like plus- figures more,
Because there is punk in us to explore.
Media buzz makes flat models look so grand
It's annoying to  think they are in command;
Oprah, Latifah weigh two hundred pounds
Yet their kind of beauty walks on awed grounds.
Who needs a lipo; do not get depressed,
At times when nothing fits as you get dressed
Just remember one thing, my natural ones
Tons of men relish our charm and round buns!

    Yes the media puts too much pressure in the wrong direction.Many of the models We see are thin as toothpicks and look unhealthy.In my opinion beauty is in the eyes of the beholder,and though the body keeps changing its the inner beauty of a person which remains the same.A great message here dear Nettie.

    This poem made me smile, because I know that every word of it is true! They say it's what's on the inside that counts, and I could not agree more! Beauty is only skin deep, and what you see isn't always what you get! Sorry, for all of the quotes, they just came to mind while reading this poem! Excellent work, Nette! :)

    I fall into this category squarely (pun intended). I don't put too much score by outward appearance, so I'm not really bothered. This is for sure a strong contest entry and I wish you well, Mistress of Linguistics. Licia :-)

    Nette, it's the light in Women's eyes that attracts me....good one! jimbo

    This is all too true my friend, people look at these thin toothpicks and think that's what you're supposed to look look like, well that is definitely NOT true, you are supposed to look like just the way you are, and people will love you that way! My mother has more weight than three of these these models, does that mean I don't like her any more than before, NEVER! So bravo in writing this awesome write Nette, I am proud that you have written this illustrious poem my friend! Great Work!!
