Five and Ten ‘cent women,
Running though the street,
Walking fast but thinking slow,
To every eye they meet,
 
Five and Ten ’cent women,
All running through my head,
Their crystal eyes and empty voice,
Haunts me before bed,
 
Five and Ten ‘cent women,
Where did your brains go?
Did you lose ’em Chicago?
Did it freeze in the snow?
 
Five and Ten 'cent women,
You are the most boring kind,
You hide behind make up and smells,
That make my eyes blind,
 
I come talk to you,
But you ain’t got no time,
You only walk to see others stare,
To make you feel so fine,
 
You agree because you don’t know,
And you’re silent in the night,
You never think too much about,
What is wrong and what is right,
 
But I still want you because,
For what is a flower for?
To look pretty and smell nice,
As I go walkin’ out the door,
 
Five and Ten ‘cent women,
Please say something real,
You kinda look like a slut,
With nothing real to feel,
 
Five and Ten ’cent women,
Good-bye, Good-bye, Good-bye,
Perhaps when you’re a real women,
I just might stop by...

Very nice! I enjoyed it fully!
Small error, that I'll point out as a friendly fellow poet;
You agree because you don’t know,
And YOU'RE silent in the night,
You never think too much about,
What is wrong and what is right,But I barely noticed, really. Anyhow, keep up the good work man! 5/5
