Listen well, for this tale is not legend nor lore,
It holds true today, and has held true in yore.
I’ll speak of a creature known to give its opinion,
And is feared everywhere from Bombay to Asuncion.
You’ll see them rule runways in Spring and the Fall,
Though you know that, like you, they shop at the mall.
And with one meal, they decide with no hesitation,
If your restaurant is worth another reservation.
At launches and premieres, they’ll express their view,
Will it be curtain call, or just curtains for you?
But most of this breed can’t act, cook, or sew,
It seem what they do best is ‘being in the know’.
If having an opinion is their only shtick,
What pray is the point of the average critic?
