A-Line Lament

Interfacing with a client you’re crewel elastically
but I bolt you to bow there’s sew much more to me.

I have notions and dreams (knot hems or French seams)
you’re an armhole of a bloke and darn, it’s no yoke.

Zippers have their lace, paper patterns too
but pleat understand there are pins I needle do …

        Oh, I’m basting my time; you can’t smocking hear
        for I’m a dumb tailor’s dummy and you have CLOTH EARS!
