Some people call it vertically challenged,
but there are many other names and jokes
they used to hurt my feelings
and I’d wish that I were tall.
Now I just let them go over my head,
(Which a lot of things do anyway).
That is, until a joke says you aren’t a person,
just because of your height.
You’d think that people would realize,
I’ve been short all my life.
Yet, they think I need to be reminded
every other day and I don’t.
So for you jokers,
remember this,
when you are about to crack a joke,
if it’s about someone being short
it’s a waste of time and vocal vibrations,
because we are already aware.
And as someone once said,
Great things come in small packages.
