Tailgate Party

Tailgate Party

We are clearly
at a disadvantage
without them;
parts of our personage
set loose in butt-sprung
spandex. Nothing disguises
our plussed derrieres.

Our foremothers
wore add-on cabooses,
cushions well served
in the art of subterfuge,
not to mention
ice skate protection,
and padded tushes
for stumblebum trippers.

Why not rustle them
back with a few snaps
and zippers? A great way
to hide a large rump,
don’t you think, since all
will attribute its shape
to the bustle.
