There should be a law against
trying on clothes
One should walk into a store
that already knows
what sizes you wear
which colors are best
what you can bare
and cover the rest!
They should have those things
like the airports have got...
Walk through and you're clothed-
ain't that a great thought?
No snobby sales ladies
"Can I help you my dear?"
No you can't-get outta here.
I'm already dressed--
Don't I look divine?
In my lavender silks
I am oh-so-fine.
"Not quite", she says
with a mean little smirk
What IS her problem,
this pushy shop clerk…
"There's a tiny dilemma
we've just detected…
your credit's denied
and now you're nekkid!"

That's a very cute poem caroline. I like your sign off (guess I'm not worth much ). Thanks for the fun.
