The Bonfire of the Vanities
Flipping through my Vanity Fair
I was taken by the flaming red lips,
The blazing shock of hair,
The frosty, white skin,
Hard as bone.

Just give me time.
More time to check myself
In my vanity case,
Touch up my lippy,
Blush up my cheeks.

Just give me space.
To make my movie,
To make a date,
To make a fire...
To burn my vanity project.

The Bonfire of the Vanities, the burning of cosmetics, art and books in Florence, Italy, took place today in 1497.
