Pristine

See the pretty faces in the magazine

Flawless skin, so smooth and clean

So impossibly pristine

Every single one a beauty queen

 

See the tanned Adonis on the TV screen

Physical perfection like you’ve never seen

So impossibly pristine

See the size of his thighs and what hangs between

 

Is this really the world in which we live?

Where the only thing that matters is being attractive?

Impossible standards are demanded

Imperfections are not permitted

 

Even the so-called dad-bod features a six-pack

(and I’m not talking cans of Stella or Bud)

The ‘plus-size’ models are hardly that

Just ’cause they’re not skeletal doesn’t make them fat

 

It’s all photoshopped and airbrushed

Polished by experts

Or sculpted in the gym for at least six years

 

Too much pressure now is put on teens

To look like the hunks and the beauty queens

The pretty faces in the magazine

The tanned Adonis on the TV screen

So impossibly pristine

So-called perfection they can never achieve
