Tastemaker, tastemaker
Give me good taste,
I need your guidance
Thereís no time to waste;
Your dictates on fashion
Will become my passion,
I donít wish to be disgraced.

Tastemaker, tastemaker
What should I wear?
Something that offers
Great style and flare,
What do you think?
Is orange the new pink?
And what should I do with my hair?

Tastemaker, tastemaker
Spotter of trends,
Cultural guru
Whose vision transcends;
What books should I read?
Please help me succeed
At acquiring the best sort of friends.


Tastemaker, tastemaker
Can you suggest,
Which boards I should join
So folks are impressed?
My house is too small
For a charity ball,
Perhaps a soiree might be best.

Tastemaker, tastemaker
What should I serve?
Something thatís tasty
With creative verve,
And table dťcor
With refinement galore
Which guests of good breeding deserve.

Tastemaker, tastemaker
How can I play?
If bowling is low brow
And baseball passť;
Museums are boring
At ballets Iím snoring
Is going RVíing okay?


Tastemaker, tastemaker
Youíve made it clear,
That RVís are out
Along with canned beer,
I donít understand,
Why you must demand
Choices which seem so severe.

Tastemaker, tastemaker
Maybe you erred?
Or maybe itís me
Who shouldnít have cared;
What people might think
Of what I should drink,
And committees that I have chaired.

Tastemaker, tastemaker
King of panache,
Czar of refinement
A doer with dash
A snob none-the-less
Who I now confess
Is worse than my inner white trash.

This is a delightful take on the topic and well explored to boot! I enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed this. I generally prefer to read stories or devotionals, but this kept my attention - great job!

This is a great poem, it made me chuckle, cringe, and nod my head. You did an unique perspective on how wanting to be the best can not give us what we really want and need.

Congratulations for placing in the top 15 of your level.
