AN AMERICAN OBSESSION???

AN AMERICAN OBSESSION???

 

In “IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD”*,

Terry-Thomas, in character pearled…

An object lesson

On American obsession,

Ladies’ breasts at attention, unfurled.

His character complained

That the rest of the world maintained….

Less need to support

Bosoms as a sport,

But American ideas have changed.

Women still squeeze and pinch

Their assets with little flinch…

If the prospect of a man

(Won’t touch that other clan**)

Investing can be influenced an inch!

I wonder, in French promenades,

Are bras worn as intensely by maids…

Or do they revel

More in “au naturale”,

Making easier tete-a-tetes in forest glades?

My Mother, having proper bra support,

Considered it part of a lady’s comport…

Seeing a gal without,

The impropriety caused pout

But for me into an interesting detail sort!

There’s been a boom in bra kinds,

And having a wife reminds…

Me to be circumspect

Certain types to reject,

For the pain of underwire grinds.

 

–Jonathan Caswell

*IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD…a classic movie produced in 1963 with Spencer Tracy, Terry-Thomas and an all-star cast…directed by Stanley Kramer…about the race to find $350,000 dollars hidden in a California park fifteen years before by the bank robber who just gets out of jail.

 

**That other clan…Some women also like to view other women.  There are blogs for that kind of thing.  I’m not denying its reality…just my not wanting to deal with it here!  That’s a different moral code than mine. 🙂
