Maiden Aunt Advises Niece Tiffany
A new coiffure would help.
Your hair should flounce
when you walk.
Spiff up your wardrobe.
Try cashmere sweaters
and fitted skirts.
Great shoes are a must.
Heels high enough to click
'Welcome' on the sidewalk.
You're a lady, Tiffany.
That's important but
bait sets the hook.
Add frippery to folderol
and stroll down Fifth Avenue
on a brilliant summer day.
Wear a new frock
and don't just sashay.
Put some oomph into it.
Smile for no reason at all.
And before summer's over,
you'll be wearing a big ring.
