I’m Thirty-Nine

I’m Thirty-Nine

Somebody brought me some shorts.
Size 40 – size 38 is to small.
But size 40 is too large.
So my shorts go t below my hips
Or they could squeeze me seriously.
What to do?
Wisdom tells me that they would shrink
Given a very hot washing. 
I don’t wash clothes anymore
But I know two folks who do. 
So I will request a shrinkage
And I pray it isn’t too much.
What problems we people have
Who have uneven waists!
