Knowin’ what to keep

September 20th, 2018

On a warm summer’s eve
On a shuttle bound for the outlet mall
I met up with the tailor
We were both too tired to sleep
So we took turns a-starin’
Out the window at the Tire Center
The boredom overtook us,
And he began to speak

He said, “Son, I’ve made a life
Out of fillin’ people’s closets
Knowin’ what their waistlines were
By the way they carried their guts
So if you don’t mind me sayin’
I can see you need a new wardrobe
For slightly less than retail
I can probably hook you up.”

So I told him my measurements
And he took out his tape
Then double checked my inseam
And the chalk he used was white
And the night got deathly quiet
And his face lost all expression
He said, “If you’re gonna wear the clothes, boy
You gotta learn to wear them right

You’ve got to know when to tumble roll ‘em
Know when to fold ‘em
Know when to run a cold cycle
So the colors won’t run
You never adjust your waistline
After eating a full Roaster meal
There’ll be time enough for adjusting’
When the poopin’s done
