Vertical Limit


Another day,
A new report,
Reminding me
That I’m too short.

My height and weight
Do not compute:
I’m far too wide
From head to boot.

If I could stand
But six foot-eight,
My height would match
My current weight.

But in my socks
I’m six foot-oh,
Which makes it plain:
I need to grow.

So I’ll increase
My daily take,
Of bread and wine
And tarter steak.

Which ought to help
Inflate my height,
And make my weight
Appear just right.
