Just had my creative juices running and thought I'd share. Maybe I'm destined to be a children's author after all (minus the thong reference)...
ODE TO SHORTS
Oh shorts, that are when pants are not,
that keep us cool when it is hot,
that show our ankles and our knees,
and come with fun accessories.
I think I'll wear you with my thong,
no, not that kind ('cause that's just wrong).
I mean the ones that go on feet,
that flip and flop and look so sweet.
And I will wear you with a blouse,
So I can lounge around my house.
Although t-shirts might work fine too.
They seem just like they're made for you.
And so to pants we bid farewell,
To see you when? We cannot tell.
For surely even you must see,
Alas, it is too hot for thee.
