Example Poem

Ducky Bras


Please let me make your bra. 
My business needs a start.
And you would look so fine
If you were to be seen
In a brassier of mine.

Please let me make your bra. 
I custom fit each one.
I promise they will fit.
I measure lovingly,
I hold and weigh each tit.

Please let me make your bra. 
One price for any size.
Your bust can't be too large.
I do so love my work,
thus may reduce the  charge.

Please let me make your bra. 
I'll give you some cleavage
if you want,  and push up
those puppies, TuDor style,
Adding at least a cup.
