Munday on Monday: Heated seats

Heated seats

The auto boasts of heated seat,

Which hardly feels warm;

And even on the setting “high”

There’s nothing out of norm.

A friend to whom I’ve told this fact,

He opts to speculate:

“The padding on the seat’s too thick

For heat to penetrate.”

I check the seat: the padding, firm;

The leather stitching, taut;

This close inspection’s verdict thus:

An overstuffing? Not.

I tell my friend, who gives reply

But soft, as from afar:

“The seat I was referring to

Is not the one in car.”
