In the black and white
times of days past (and not so far away)
glamour was defined by icons
pretending to be perfect.
Small town girls dream
of the Hollywood lights,
while the starlets wish for
nothing more than a simpler life,
but lassos are useless in L.A.
and cattle are not raised in a desert.

Now they parade for all and pretend nothing, bared soul to the world…
