Can somebody listen, please?
My cardi’s flapping in the breeze.
The fabric’s cosy, the length is long,
But without buttons it just feels wrong.
Maybe it saves manufacturers money,
Yet a chilly bosom is not funny.
Long cardis with buttons are rare, I fear.
In vain, I look for them every year.
Clothes designers, don’t be tardy –
Put some buttons on my cardi!
It may have taken me all of 15 minutes to write the poem and do a biro sketch, but seriously, why do so many cardigans not have buttons? If I had a time machine, I’d go back 10 years and buy a lifetime’s supply of long, cosy cardigans with chunky buttons. Of course I would also do other stuff such as seeing the dinosaurs, experiencing Shakespeare’s plays first-hand, the evolution of humanity into higher beings, etc.
