A Swimsuit Sonnet
At u3a's new swimming group
I aimed to make a good impression.
But when I reviewed the saggy droop
of the swimsuit in my possession
I had to go and do some shopping.
I sought a bargain in the sale,
something basic, not show-stopping.
But common sense did not prevail.
The designer costume that I found
(much reduced in price, to my delight)
supported, lifted, and was all round
figure-hugging, though not too tight.
Alas, it soon became apparent
that, once wet, it was transparent.
