They pluck and primp and wax and clean
everywhere they can be seen
always a mirror in, or on hand
to keep up with today’s demands
whether in school, hamburger bars
street corners, railway cars
their attention to detail and application
of makeup, before arriving at their destination
a skill that has to be admired
for these pretty things must be ever so tired
with their ketais and other toys
what ever will become of these japanese boys.
