Plastic Surgery?

The perky breasts of mannequins
Inflame the poor Irannequins;
Because their lust could not be sated
They had the boobies amputated!
Now, lest you think their actions drastic--
Plastic surgery on plastic--
The clerics claim they had good cause
To hack away at tits with saws;
There is, I think perhaps, an answer--
A cause as cruel, as dire as cancer:

Religion is the real disease
That led to these mastectomies.

I love the title of this one.

What I find most striking, to be honest, is not that the breasts have been cut off, that is just absurd, but that all the mannequins of women look so hopeless. They have female faces, but they look as if they all almost cadavers... The idea that even showing a smiling face would be wrong... I do hope that it is just this one photo, but I doubt it. It probably is another aspect of their control system. It saddens me deeply.

Beautiful poetry.
Sad topic.
