“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!
