Belts

A belt keeps pants from falling down Or gives the loops employment. A song that’s belted out may give The audience enjoyment. A belt of Scotch may calm the nerves But there is no denyin’ The brightest belt is in the sky On he who hunts, Orion. One belt can lay a boxer flat And factory surveyors Keep track of goods that travel On the belts we call conveyors. What prompted this was Henry,* Such a proud, excited fellow Who just passed his test in Tae Kwon Do And earned his belt of yellow! *my 4 ½ year old grandson
