Cheeky Taft

Cheeky Taft

If William Howard Taft were here
he’d tell you that seats today
are nowhere near wide enough.
How’s a man supposed to get comfortable
when two-thirds of his butt is hanging
off the side of the chair?

And don’t get me started about car seats.
Okay, so Taft probably sat in the back of
a big wide limo with plenty of room
around his cheeks, but I’ll tell you what.
Car seats are two damned narrow.

This is my response to Calling All Early Birds, the early starter prompt on March 31 from, which is to write a poem inspired by a fun fact.
