[FONT="]Women’s Pants With Holes (new rhyme) by Liu Congjia
These casual jeans are in a strange style,
Modern but rare since the ancient times.
A big hole on the leg for no reason,
Just to show the nice skin with intention.
Classic and odd are hard to be a consistency,
Either cabbage or radish is a good alternative.
No need to sniff at petite bourgeoisies,
[FONT="]and having the old stereotypes is not necessary.
