Outrageous!

Fat blond girl, fourteen
scowls in aquarium line.
Lime green T shirt screams
in huge white neon letters
ENTERTAIN ME! I'M BORED!
I don't know who to throttle,
parents, manufacturer, media.
How could such an outrageous
message be culturally cool?
Acceptable? How can anyone
believe that is funny? I rage.
I cry. I fear for our children.
