The Fashion One

Some fashions are made for the treadmill,

And some made to wear at a standstill.

But the ones we call “fast”

Are the ones that will last,

’Cause they’ll moulder for years in a landfill.


The limerick competition got me started, and now I can't stop. Send help. Or food. Or money.
