“it’s a stretch”

Written for:  The Twiglets #292 - it's a stretch

One size 
does not 
fit all.  
will hang
on someone thin,
squeeze and pinch
someone plump.  
It's a stretch 
to claim
one size fits all.

Did you see that
catch?  What a
super stretch!
He won the game.

stretched like canvas
awe on spectator's faces
pink cotton candy sky

            Stretching too far to catch the baseball,
              he fell out of his seat, took a fall
                   onto a girl's shoulder
                   like a two-ton boulder.
     He called foul, she palmed the ball.  He yelled, what gall!

    All fun verses. I was at a ball game recently… and watched a few ‘flies’ get caught.
    None by me! 🙂
