It was a bit
Muddy.
The child
Wanted to
Play in the
Park.

Mother
Said:
No..!

Why?

'Cos he was
Wearing
A Designer
Clothing
Which could
Get dirty.


The mother
Was trying
To keep up
With the
Other Parents
Whose children
Were also wearing
Designer Clothing.

Can't blame her
In this show-off
World of brand name
Labelling.

She too
Had caught
The Bug.

Lacoste
Calvin Klein
Dolce&Gabbana

Nike and
Reebok
Adidas
Gucci

The
United
Colors of
Benetton
Pierre Cardin
Prada

You name it
She had it...

I kept
Wondering
Was it all
At the cost of
Her child
Losing his
Joy of Playing...?
