Short v Tall

Short  v  Tall

Tall reaches  tallest  shelf ,stretching heights he reaches by  himself.
Short  will struggle down below, short always knows how low to go.
Tall takes big steps..
Short likes short drops..
Tall’s high  ‘n mighty..
Short’s low n’ flighty..
Tall bangs head on normal doorframes,
Short  has  much less leg to shave.
Greek Gods were tall
and almost never  very small.
Short like to  naps just anywhere,
tall rides the best rides at the fair.
Short can ignore signs ‘Mind your head,’
tall’s feet always hang from the bed
Shorts temper maybe match his size,
tall’s stories maybe match his lies.
Short means you get to front of show,
Tall tells the shorties where to go
So short or tall its all the  same…
Their height will  live up to their frame!

Ah there are advantages and disadvantages to all..as I said  when you are short  you do get the the front plus there is far less leg for ladies to have to shave !!! A great bonus I think!Glad I raised a smile hun ! xx
