The Last Button on My Shirt

Last Shirt Button

Why indeed?

The last button on my shirt

Is a lazy lad:

He lies horizontal

And while I don’t think it bad

He doesn’t stand up straight and tall

Like his other kin

And to tell the truth, sometimes I have to

Wonder just what’s wrong with him.

His brothers do as they should

While he sleeps away the day

And I wonder that he can hold at all

Lying in that way.

But I confess, he does the job

As well as another other

I’ll have to look at all my shirts

To see if he has a brother.

So hold and sleep, my little one

While others are up there on the guard

They still have a ways to go but

You won’t go very far.

    Love this. I have several shirts withe bottom BH in this orientation. I have no idea why.

    • Thanks, Ken. I put a link in the “Comments” section of the blog about why this is so. I thought the theories were interesting.

      Take care, and have a great Easter!

  2. Thanks for your comment, Ken. I was curious as to why they’re horizontal, so I looked it up. Here’s a link to a site with a couple of different ideas: https://www.quora.com/Why-on-most-mens-button-down-shirts-is-the-bottom-most-button-slit-horizontal-not-vertical-like-the-rest
