I’m All (Too Old) For T-shirts

I’m too old

for T-shirts.

It hurts me

to say it,

but I don’t want

to look like a hypocrite

or sound like one, too;

but, I am,

and there’s not a lot

that I can do

about the fact.

So, please show tact

when you laugh at my slogan,

and the size of my paunch;

launch into laughter

if you must,

but I’m getting the feeling

that my T-shirt days

are bust.

T-Shirt Slogans

“Dreamer!”

“Peanut Butter!”

my T-shirts shout

of my fondest desires;

“Funeral Pyres!”

“Brussels Sprouts!”

rarely – if ever – seen

imposed upon one’s clothing;

“Be Vegan!”

“Go Green!”

are now acceptable in such places

where once such slogans

we’re as popular as fiery dragons,

and life was twice as cheap

as the cows, chickens and sheep

that humans gave in droves

to the hungry lizard,

aflame, aloft,

to keep their little lives

warm, safe, and soft.
