Sport Togs

I like to see the younger girls
In slacks or shorts;
Such clothing was designed, I know,
For active sports.
But housing scrawny middle-age
Or buxom dames make them the rage,
The scene is out of sorts.
There are out-sizes who prefer
The age old skirt,
Refuse to have their bosoms bulge
An outing shirt,
Remaining incog as they can,
¬Not merely "mutton dressed as lamb,"
The silhouette doesn't hurt.
But when a bouncing forty-two
Appears in gear,
Modeled from size fourteen,
And a younger year,
Displaying heft both fore and aft,-
A Clydesdale hitched to racing shaft,
I could really shed a tear.
