The mannequins move upon the screen, air-brushing reality from the dream,
Woman defined by only her home, generic male is industry's drone

Art imitates life, to the neighbors' acclaim as the ersatz couple are perfectly framed
With their synthetic children and enamel smiles, behold; “Still Life With Plastic Tiles”

So the interrogation begins, the spotlight falls upon the wife’s sins:
“HOW CLEAN IS YOUR HOUSE? ARE YOU ONE OF US?” Quick! Clean the dirt, and polish the dust!

The whole world glares through double-glazed eyes at your pitch-black whites and your cellulite thighs
Eight out of ten say you're incomplete ‘til your soul smiles back at you from clean white sheets

So exorcise your home in the Aryan way and keep the dust devils safely at bay
Scrub your children until they bleed, or people will think that you're strange indeed

...just bein' Bluesy

How glibly you speak of my demons, Bluesy!
And the children only bled a little. ~L

Yes, Miss Lori, I've gotta lay off those '50's family sitcoms! Tell me you don't do house chores in nylons and high-heels!

Bluesy, when I put on nylons and heels the only dusting I'll be doing is with my long mascaraed lashes... ~L
