This Summer is a Bummer

I never wanted a behind
like Kim Kardashian’s,
no uninvited fuss
about my gluteous maximus.
I recently discovered
superfluous flesh,
and am afraid to go uncovered
or wear a clingy style of dress.
I long for autumn
and a coat to hide my bum.

My response to dVerse Poets Pub Quadrille: Shall we bum around a bit?

De is back to dance another quadrille with us, this time using the word ‘bum’, which has a different meaning in Britain to other parts of the world.

  1. LOL! Your Pooh cartoon and poem made me laugh! Thank you for that! I have definitely acquired my own “covid 19,” for sure (it’s like “Freshman 15” but takes much less time to gain.). 😉

    1. Thank you, Sanaa. 🙂 I’m struggling with my diabetes after being shielded for so long, and I turned to food for comfort. Getting out and about again will help, as will the diet.
