Putting her unadorned baggy white dress on
Leaving so much to the imagination that it hurt to even try to fantasize anything about her
And piling her hair up under her uninspiring hat
It gave the world the perfect vanilla picture she craved them to know
Nobody would expect the wildness contained therein until it was too late
Stench of burnt sugar permeated the kitchen,
Making the smoke detector chime in with its opinion on the situation.
Everyone came running in to see what happened.

Focusing on the boring fundamentals was not his strong suit
All he wanted to do was gild the lily with as much gold as it could handle
Nothing made him happier than making those around him not feel plain
Causing them to bloom and allowing him to make them sparkle even more

Eventually cutting out all the plain.
