Ode to Poly

entry picture
Dedicated to X Ray Spex vocalist Mari "Poly Styrene" Elliot. 

Exotic colored clothes
metallic braced teeth
a refusal to be sex symbol
punk aura underneath

Living in a plastic bag
as a germfree adolescent
in '77 you proclaimed we where all going mad

Age, you're so afraid
of the silly billys
and been strangled by plastic popper beads

I know you're antiseptic
but your deodrant smelt nice
bondage can still be told UP YOURS!
as your deep frozen as the ice

The day didn't go day glo
on the day you left the world
now the music world is dull and so very clean
when all the world needs
is another Poly Styrene.
