In knee high boots and skirts that lift the thigh,

Unbelievable but grey is the new fashion colour sweeping the world, for both men and women, waiting for the first good poem on grey not black :) Nice poem Mark, leaves me to worship all the other hair colours and black, a gentleman cannot slight crown hair adorned ladies, all women are always their parents beloved babies, may all women enjoy adoration moments of cat walk, when in beauty they walk the walk and talk the talk.
