The Golden Globes

I watched the Golden Globes
And learned who everybody wore.
I wonder who that information
Might be stated for.

It’s not like most of us will run
To find a matching dress.
If it’s couture, it costs much more
That most folks earn, I guess.

Yet still, it’s fun to criticize
Or ogle and admire
And try to picture being dressed
In similar attire:

The gown, the make-up, jewels and hair;
The shoes and corsets – ouch!
I’m grateful that I watched it from
The comfort of my couch.

    I missed the Golden Globe Awards this year. You have described the annual event quite well with your chosen words.
