Suspenders (a silly poem)

(This poem is fiction. I am not obese, and I don't wear suspenders; not that there's anything wrong with that). I've been wearing suspenders since the day of my birth, only now they're much bigger, because of my girth. I wear burlap pants as I haven't much money, so it's not a fun time when the day's hot and sunny. I shopped for a belt once, and my size they had not, so I tied two belts together and became overwrought. So it's back to suspenders with my hot, burlap pants, they're unpleasantly scratchy, and I've noticed a rash.

Clutterbug, the last time I commented on your poem I said you were gifted. I have to reiterate. This one is so funny and cute all at once.You are truly gifted. I write poems myself.But I find it hard to write horror and funny poems. This one is super cute. Great job!

This one I really like. It almost sounds like a country song, now if I could just write music we could go on the road together and hit all those one night stands.
