When The Foolish Became Hip

In the days far in the futures past,
When no one seemed to have a grip.
There was a time,
best forgot,
when the foolish became hip.
The style was to fasten,
huge weights upon their lips.
No one could state the obvious,
when the foolish became hip.
It was wrong to even mention,
the weight could make them trip.
There would be no dissension
when the foolish became hip.
Although they felt discomfort,
as the ground rubbed their lips,
it was never mentioned,
when the foolish became hip.
They learned to drink
with heads submerged,
they just couldn’t take a sip.
They became the cultures darlings,
when the foolish became hip.
Years later there was wonder,
How did they let it slip.
A strange footnote in history,
when the foolish became hip.
