“For the Girls,” by Penny Peyser

Aug 20th, 2017 | By | Category: Poetry

Putting on thy bra is not an option
When getting dressed to act’ally start the day.
Not doing so will trash a plan’s adoption
And leave one’s girls so aimlessly to sway.
To lift and separate promotes a mental
Alertness, as my mother always said.
Avoiding sagging thoughts is elemental
And will keep progress pointing straight ahead.
‘T is tempting not to fasten hooks and eyes
When lounging in one’s robe seems more ideal
But thwarting gravity always relies
On good support. Ma Nature keeps it real.

I’m all for hanging loose, but let’s be clear—
If thou means business, put on thy brassiere.
