Bad Fit

by Nora Jay

“First All-Female Spacewalk Canceled Because NASA Doesn’t Have Two Suits That Fit …
The two astronauts who were scheduled to walk together in space on Friday, Anne C. McClain and Christina H. Koch, would both need to wear a medium-size torso component. But only one is readily available at the International Space Station.”
—The New York Times

Out on a limb in empowering women,
Poor NASA acknowledged themselves in a fix:
This was a spacewalk, it wasn’t a catwalk,
And sadly they hadn’t two suits in a 6.

Clothing compliance is not rocket science:
No need to design for an alien race;
Girls need their torso, like boys (slightly more so):
Don’t let it be said they’re not suited for Space.
