Strolling down a garden path

In punishing heat, the rich are trapped

Trapped in beautiful, restrictive garb

While lesser folk happily consume

Beer, soda and fountain water

The laughing poor with loose cotton attire

Drenching face, chest and throat with public water

Impoverished hair, happily bound up and askew

Regal ladies must not and will not ruin

Their coiffed hair and make-up

Oh, how the upper 3% do suffer
