In Other Words — Dress Up

1D4D37D6-D6EF-496D-B226-DA2D59780525Black leather shoes, black socks, and suit of gray

Pressed white shirt, Oxford striped necktie all the way

And then one day I decided to retire

Now I dress down and wear whatever I desire

T-shirts, blue jeans, and sneakers, hooray!

      I’m only a poet if you consider poetry to be putting a full return instead of a period at the end of a sentence and making a few words rhyme.

        Of course! It’s easier because you can talk in half sentences and no punctuation 🙂 lol

    Retirement is wonderful for many reasons. I like that I don’t have to get out of my pajamas until noon if I want. I am all for jeans and tees. Thanks for linking.
