Treasure Island

David Darbyshire

(6/11/54 / Darwen England)

501


I have had my levis a very long time,
rips and tears, patches on patches.
25 years, of a stitch in time, saves nine,
so many different colors, nothing matches.

I love my Jeans so much,
if them, I could only touch.
There hanging behind a frame,
it's not quite the same.

I want to wear my Jeans,
I love my blue pants.
I think it's in my Genes,
or are they called trousers?

I mean, to put your legs,
into that soft velvet.
A little low riding on the hip,
bell bottoms as well as a zip.
Love-em.

    Love Levi's also, my favourite are 665's, much more generous on the hips. These one's are hard to find though. Enjoyed this write, Dave. (Report) Reply

    Nothing better than a nice soft comfy pair of jeans! (except maybe a nice soft comfy pair of jammies...or a nice soft comfy pair of socks if you have cold feet...)
    Hugs,

    LOVE my jeans - never trousers - and wear them until they are absolute rags! Hate having to buy the stiff new ones - love the 'velvet' of the old. You really hit the spot with this one! Scarlett (Report) Reply
