Don’t break the elastic

(Originally published by Nattie on November 24, 2003)
My elastic is wearing thin. I’ll fill you in later. Just enjoy the words of Maya Angelo for now.

Don’t Break The Elastic
by Maya Angelou
When I was in my younger days,
I weighed a few pounds less,
I needn’t hold my tummy in to wear a belted dress. But now that I am older,
I’ve set my body free;
There’s the comfort of elastic
Where once my waist would be.
Inventor of those high-heeled shoes
My feet have not forgiven;
I have to wear a nine now,
But used to wear a seven.
And how about those pantyhose-
They’re sized by weight, you see,
So how come when I put them on
The crotch is at my knee?
I need to wear these glasses
As the print’s been getting smaller;
And it wasn’t very long ago
I know that I was taller.
Though my hair has turned to gray
and my skin no longer fits,
On the inside, I’m the same old me,
It’s the outside’s changed a bit.
