A Suggestion

 As I go and shop, sir!
If a car I stop, sir!
Where you chance to sit,
And you want to read, sir!
Never mind or heed, sir!
I’ll not care a bit.
For it’s now aesthetic To be quite athletic.
That’s our fad, you know.
I can hold the strap, sir! And keep off your lap, sir! As we jolting go.
If you read on blindly, I shall take it kindly, All the car’s not mine.
But, if you sit and stare, sir! At my eyes and hair, sir! I must draw the line.
If the stare is meant, sir! For a compliment, sir! As we jog through town, Allow me to suggest, sir! A woman oft looks best, sir! When she’s sitting down.
