Yorkshire Lasses Wear Posh Frocks

Yorkshire Lasses Wear Posh Frocks!

In the glossies I often see derogatory comments that bother me!
Fashionista you are such a clown!
You state we are chavs letting the country down!

Hey stylist,  when dictating your blog, make haste, Yes! Yorkshire lasses do have good taste!
It is with discrimination you vent your spleen
Open your eyes and stop being soooo mean!

You guys really need to 'shut your faces!
Look how well we scrub up for t 'York races'!
Yes from boho to soho we  rock our style
Yet at every opportunity you put us 'on trial’

Channel and Dior are basically, such a bore! (Yawn)
Give me Primani, Pucci and charity shop chic
Get with the project you bourjois geek!

Fashion police!  you drive me up the pole
It's about time you  learnt to 'shut your 'cake hole'!
Time for you to take stock, yep it is a shock ‘Yorkshire lasses can rock a posh frock!

Let us Unite o sisters of the north!
From Hollywood to Bollywood we've got it all!
It's time!  ‘Oh yay’ Cinderella will attend the ball

About this poem

This was an ‘off the cuff’ rhyme inspired by a news article I read about Yorkshire women. I was tempted to have a ‘rant’ however, I turned it into a verse.?
