'Ode' To My Skinny Pants - Poem by Nikki Richards

I fooled the whole world for a number of years.
The opposite sexm, those gullible dears.
A sexy slim body, and cute little butt.
Had them acting like fools and behaving like nuts.
But old Father Time had a plan for this figure.
That cute little butt, well it only got bigger.
One life changing morning my pants wouldn't fit.
No pulling or tugging got them over my hips.
Denial, denial, surely they've shrunk.
This simply can't be, Lord, tell me I'm drunk!
The lesson I've learned will last me forever.
The world you might fool, but your skinny pants ... never!

    Other than it's really much, much too short to ever be considered an ode, the poem is pretty good. (Report)Reply
