Welcome Lady Penelope
Editor’s Note: The supremely talented actress Penny Peyser will be gracing us, now and again, with her charming and delightfully funny portrayal of the eccentric Lady Penelope performing “Sonnets from Suburbia”. You will love her witty, insightful, and brilliantly written Shakespearean sonnets explaining modern day life for women.

Lady Penelope with her unique take on life today and the rhyme and rhythm of her “Sonnets from Suburbia” will make your life much sweeter. Welcome Lady Penelope! And her sonnet , “The Girls”, is the perfect topic for us gals today.
“For the Girls”
Putting on a 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 provides a mental
alertness, as my mother often 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!
