Got the World on a String

by loisseau

The column in last month’s Cosmopolitan,
“Fourteen Ways to Keep Your Man Happy”
was real good, but who had the time,
what with Carl laid off, and hanging around?

He snorted when I asked could I get a set
of Maidenform Delectables, the pretty ones
in the ad with all them balloons flying around.
Maybe bra and half slip, to cover my worn panties.

“Shit, they don’t make 43DD’s. You’re big
enough to nurse Guam, and unless them things
are made of candy, I’ll be damned
if you’ll spend my hard-earned cash on junk!”

“Don’t give me any crap either. The only thing
you’ll have on a string is a Tampax. Get me a beer.”

dark sense of humor, is how this one strikes me. Interesting, the sequence of thought has a good pace.
