Buttons and Things

Oh why oh why
Do my buttons always break and fly?
I do not know
For my belly just seems to grow and grow

I try to stipend 
The grownth from within 
But my hunger it swells 
And my will grows thin

My buttons they seem
So weak and frail
But I wonder if they 
The problem entail

My waistline it stretches 
And my clothes grow tighter 
The harder I squeeze
My face grows whiter

These buttons they seem 
To have a mind of their own 
They fly off at will
And constantly must be resewn

A frustrating matter
This seemingly becomes
As I sit here befuzzled 
And  twiddle my thumbs

Unending discomfort 
In my trousers abound
I've searched for the answer 
But none's to be found

This Poem was a lovely Joint effort with my beautiful friend Skyler Dawn. We had fun making it, hope you enjoy it! :)
