Wardrobe Malfunctions

Kim Kadaashina

There is laughter everywhere
Like a “Carry On” comedy is being
Broadcasted on TV, when young men
And old, look forward to the next mishap,
The next wardrobe malfunction.
If you look at the world today, you see,
How often celebrities have nip-slips
And occasions when the wind,
Makes the hemline rise to show
More than they should. Carry on
Is a lifestyle now, sometimes
Even choreographed, just so a moment
Is immortalized, like how a lass
With big breasts and bigger buttocks
Becomes in a fleeting jiffy,
A not-so-rare Kimberly diamond.
