Poetry Scales

People who pair penny loafers
With peddle-pushers perpetually
Portray preppy pubescence
Without wearing wardrobe warning
Labels literally licensing looky-loos
Freedom to follow fifties flavored fashions
From forty-fourth to forty-
Second Street secretly spying sassy
Pants and pretending that popularity
Matters little or mayhaps more
Than thick ties to time,
Talent, or

Not much can be done
When alliteration alone
Dictates the direction of the dance.
