Am I Vain?

Left my makeup bag

at school one night

when conferences ran late.

Without my “mask”

upon my face

small talk just had to wait.

When morning came

I ran real fast

to paint my face anew.

 

Kids will never see

my paint-free face

or they would cry “That’s who?”

 

Am I vain?

  1. I don’t know if I would call it vain, either. Maybe well-trained by our makeup crazy society????
    And I love your poem! Very clever!
