Dizzy with glory

She was the talk of the town
Having won the Miss Universe crown
Now there’s talk about
Her having passed out
And her spokesperson blaming the gown!


CNN.Com 24/07/06: Forty minutes into her reign as Miss Universe 2006, Miss Puerto Rico Zuleyka Rivera Mendoza collapsed during a post-pageant news conference and was rushed off-stage. Read about it here

    Sorry, if sound like a prude.
    The sight of those girls semi-nude,
    With their smiles so plastic
    And replies so synthetic -
    I find the whole Beauty Queen business quite pseud.
