A Shirt From The Wardrobe - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

Not worn for many years,
Suddenly grown over sized,
The sleeves are hung from,
The shoulders, the junction,
At the arm pits look as the sacks,
A tailor made perfect piece,
Outsized to be a farce,
A shirt, which is kept as a souvenir,
Once fitted and radiated the curves,
Not really collapsed, but gets bigger.

    Suddenly grown over sized
    I am sure it is a good sign to keep in shape. Problem is usually the other way and that is what I face. Beautiful poem. Thank you.
