Suspenders are oblivious
To their importance
They hold shit up
Panties can only be pink once
Bras are too self-involved
Gloves never lay a hand on anything
Belts are for the buttless
Tightening up when uncomfortable
Loosening up after a few drinks
Jock Straps think too much
About Athletic Support
Jeans are multitaskers
With concentration problems
Especially if they’re hugging hips
T-Shirts only want to play
When it’s time for bed
Unless they’re a Pocket Tee
Then they have an identity crisis
Nylons can get along with anyone
Until their toes get stiff
Or their conversation skills sag
Zip ups are perverted ass pinchers
Buttons get too attached
Scarves are spiritual masters
Of Body and Soul, Yin and Yang
Unless they are 100% wool
Jackets are pretenders
to the throne of Coats
Turtlenecks are creepy
Pajamas play hooky
Drink Spanish Coffee
Lay around watching soaps
Ponchos live precariously
If they are fringed
They might be seen at night
But quickly disappear in the day
A blouse is a blouse is a blouse

Those lines killed me!!😂😂😂
This is beautiful.
You might like my poem Begone, Mr Beard. Check it out sometime?
Hahahahah! I read this 3-4 times in a row! Clever, and an easy read…
This is a really neat style of writing and spectacularly clever. Well done.
You breathed life into simple garments. Pretty cool. I like pjs best.
How brilliant! I have never met anyone that has YET to write anything like this on clothings! LOL
I really love this, Awesome, really!
Even these first few steps … hahahaha … Awesome! 🙂

Great pictures! I love the humor of your poetic imagination. 🙂

Very clever….nicely done.
I loved it from beginning to end. You put a smile on my face. Those pictures are great.
I’d be lost without my belts & many people would be visually assaulted daily when my pants fell down sans my belt especially since I seldom wear panties and despite my best efforts I am one of the “buttless”…
Hahahaha it’s all true and I enjoyed your post 🙂
Neither do I. lol
Ich verstehet du nicht?
Der hatten ist fur mich. sorry about that.. ha
Don’t think you missed a garment in of my humans closets. All seem to have neurosis – maybe that’s why humans are so mentally disturbed – it’s catching. We dogs don’t have such problems since we don’t wear clothes. Maybe you humans should start going naked.

Thanks again calensariel. I have an imagination problem.
Lordy! I laughed all through that. I don’t know how on earth you come up with such interesting things to write about.
That was pretty awesome!
