There are no breaking news at the moment

You were called
Sophisticated
Yes
The chic clothes
Were your props
The perfume
Your halo
You carried yourself
Well
But then
There were so many aids
Stripped of them
You panicked
The person in you
Had had
Too many crutches
The two feet
The mind
Were not enough
You ran for cover
