Poem: Styles for Sylphs

Styles for Sylphs

Aging bodies, changing shape

Don’t like the way clothes now drape

Weight has shifted to my waist

Saggy in butt, not my taste

 –

Dressed like old crone not my aim

Mass production is the blame

Store bought trousers, blue jeans too

All are made for select few

 –

You might say they don’t know

The varied shapes women grow

I do not believe that is true

This indifference is not new

 –

Stylers design to impress

Don’t want plump girls in their dress

Market to young pretty sylphs

Not those bodies whose parts shift

 –

Must be why you often see

Older women, much like me

Attired in pants which bag and droop

Or joining the stretch pant group
