Marc Jacobs Broke My Heart

Yes, the dreads are upsetting, but it did not end there.

When I first saw the pictures of the S/S 2017 runway show, I scoffed and was prepared to part with some respect  for the designer. In my opinion, Marc Jacobs is a great designer.

Decided to save a ho

(After all she was mine)

I felt the need to be your hero

Despite every time

You treated me like a zero

Maybe underneath all anger I still cared

Maybe this was the quickest way to get you out of my hair



Truth is
