Perfect

Following on from last week’s post, which got tweaked not once, but twice after posting, a little something about perfection:

Everyone so focused on perfect
When all it can ever be
Is a state of mind
A place far
From reality

Perfect
Job
House
Car
Look
Selfie

By God
By association
Bye-bye blemish

Bo Derek
Ten in sea
Captured on camera
For all posterity

Constant good never bad
Thrown away when looking through
No middle ground to be had
Between pristine and Timbuktu

Teeth an ideal shade of white
A model dog to pet
Idyllic clothes neat and matching
Perfectly soft furnishings
With just the right lighting set
Perfection in ambient TV watching
Where talk’s about perfecting more
It’s been said a million times already
So what a perfect rude word bore
