HE USED TO STYLE HIMSELF AS A “FASHION POET”. NOT SO MUCH NOW. SAFER THAT WAY!
WAS THAT GINGHAM?
Today he saw a nice dress
Of small checks that impressed…
Dark blue mini-squares
On white also there,
Familiar, yet rarely expressed.
A blogger wore a slim pencil skirt,
This material looked very pert…
Combined with a top
For which traffic would stop,
It was a wonderful flirt.
The women serving FRIENDLY’S ICE CREAM,
Used to wear uniforms…a gingham dream..
For a pubescent boy
But his Mother would invade his scene!
Gingham…usually seen in Western
Movies in which women dressed…
In what they could afford
Riding on a buckboard,
Those women–the young ones–looked the best.
So gingham—the boy’s old friend—
Has come back in style again…
A pencil skirt sharp
In gingham, hear a harp
Sweetly playing music in each hem!
NOTE: the Poet is not really a fashion critic…more of a fashion encourager!
