Do I look good in this
‘Do I look good in this and I want the honest truth?’
‘Well honey it would help if you stepped outside the booth.’
‘The zip’s a little tight’ she said, so I knew the task ahead,
But I couldn’t really tell her to choose something else instead.
‘What do you think? Is the colour right and what about the length?’
‘I’m not Yves Saint Laurent’ I said, someone give me strength.
There are women all around the place, there are women everywhere,
Being outside the changing rooms, where’s appropriate to stare?
A hundred outfits later and not a single item bought,
Despite vocal approval of the complimentary sort.
And so alas we return to the item at the start,
‘This is my favoured choice’ she said. At least now we can depart!!
