Ode to My Thighs

Oh Thighs, how lovely
you used to be
So muscular and thin
Firm and solid, you stood apart
No dimples in your skin

On Sunny days the shorts
were short
and swimsuits had no skirts
to run and play were easy feats
and I never missed dessert

I woke this morning
and took the hill
that left you in this pain
I had to make it happen if I should
ever wear shorts again

Oh Thighs, how lovely you
used to be
so muscular and thin
I'll walk a thousand miles
to slim you down again.

This is fabulous! So clever! I might have to share it with my coworkers today, would you mind? Did you write it?

Maurisa said...

Love it :-)

Dawn - hilarious! You write better poetry than you probably believe! Anne, she would notate if she borrowed it from somewhere - she's thorough. :)

Oh my gosh! I was in hysterics when I saw this! I'll let you in on a little secret though:

I once was fat
But now I'm thin
And I STILL have those dimples
On my skin!

Aww..Gee..thanks ladies! I'm very flattered. I did pen this masterpiece and you may freely use it wherever ya'd like for a mere one meeeellion dollars (said with pinky at edge of lips :) Naw..just kiddin'. Most of ya'll don't have a meellion bucks, so you can use it for free :) (if you do have a meellion bucks though...)
