The Egyptians saved money with faience,
Making Faux Lapis & Turquoise medallions,
The Venetians with fish scales and glass,
Faking Pearls for Medieval Italians.
When concerns later turned more to ethics,
Animals were saved by the “Wumpus” and Pleather,
But if truth be told, in the Winter,
Give me Sable for the coldest of weather.
Born from financial or moral motivations,
Whether plastic, pile, plush, glass or clay,
Mondays are about parading vintage,
And Faux is the word of the day!
