Could Have Been Worse

by Bill Dodds

My friends have not seen London,
They’ve never been to France,
But yesterday at recess
They saw my underpants.

I kicked a ball, my skirt flew up,
And I know what they saw.
The girls all stared and blushed and laughed,
The boys said, “Oo-la-la!”

I’ve thought a lot about it.
This conclusion I have drawn:
I’m embarrassed that they saw them,
But I’m glad I had them on.
