Howdy folks! 

Keeping up appearances, regardless of how fake,
Is the way of many, the path they choose to take.

"Keeping Up Appearances"
Poem/art by Artsieladie
Full Size PNG:

Keeping Up Appearances takes precedence these days.
It's all about how we look in the various visual ways.
Our clothes must be fashionable, our hair must always shine,
Our body must be perfect, our face look young and fine.
So we work and work for the cost of this charade.
Though we are so stressed, the expense must be paid.

While who we are within, it seems we have forgot,
For how we appear's important, yet within, matters not.
Inside we can be rotten, selfish to the core;
As long as we're looking good, 'cause nothing matters more.
Modesty, former classiness, now has aside been flung
For sexual promiscuity and a wagging, toilet tongue.

Technology is keeping up with appearances' demand
With selfie taking phones attached to every hand.
The competition's fierce on the crowded stage,
Where breeds narcissism, spitefulness, and rage.

Being public is what's in, while privacy is out.
It's tell and show the world all, barring any doubt.
Everyone is public and so is everything,
All except humility as we, to our egos, cling.

All this showing off with our egos on parade,
We're too high on self to see, the outcome of our trade.
As Keeping Up Appearances keeps taking precedence,
Human values keep eroding along with common sense.
If Keeping Up Appearances remains the center of our attention,
Humanity will pay the cost with no values left to mention.

💗 Have a blessed day! 💗
