Trouble at the Store
Summer has arrived and now it’s time to keep in trim,
I need a brand new costume, for my early morning swim,
I trot off to the shop; I'll maybe buy a halter neck,
Or something sweet and charming, like a pretty gingham check,
Should I try a nice bikini, in a turquoise or a blue?
But my reflection in the shop, says a bikini just won’t do,
I try a dark grey swimsuit, but it's tight, and far too small,
Gives the shape of a small hippo, and that's just not right at all,
I try the daring halter neck, but much to my chagrin,
My wobbly bits are wobbling; I can’t get them to fit in,
I need to collect the children; this is taking far too long,
The shop has problems with their sizing, it’s so obviously wrong,
And I’m not sure that a daily swim is such a good idea,
As the pool is not that handy, not conveniently near,
And as I look at all the costumes, all discarded, thrown and spread,
I realise that I really need a pair of shoes .....instead.
