I wrote this about a dear short friend and for all the shorties in the world.
The View From Down There
A petite women, barely five feet tall,
tired of all the ridiculous questions
about why she grew hardly at all
despite their silly, impractical suggestions.
"Hey Shorty, how's the weather down there?"
they asked with sneering, pompous poses.
My short friend gleefully did declare,
"I see lots of hair in people's noses."
Those tall ninnies with brains not bright
showed their manners to be uncouth,
due no doubt to their excess height
and poor guidance in their youth.
