Sonnets From Suburbia: For the Girls
“For the Girls” is one of my fav sonnets from Lady Penelope, aka Penny Peyser, and that sonnet now resides in her brilliant newly released book, “Sonnets from Suburbia: More Candles Than Cake”. I LOVE it! Get your copy ASAP, Gals! “More Candles than Cake” takes you on a fantastical journey of unique charm, hilarity, insight, wit and inspiration. Penny Peyser’s carefully curated collection of her sonnets will delight all women of a certain age. Her book is a work of pure genius! And “For the Girls” is a perfect example, Tomatoes.
For the Girls
Putting on thy bra is not an option
when getting dressed to actually 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.
