Treasure Island

C R Clark

(1946 / Arkansas)

Come On Fellers, Loosen Up

To the company that supplies our uniforms
This letter is written to alert and inform
We don’t really like what you’ve gone and done
We liked things better like they used to run

Ya’ll changed our britches, now we can’t breathe
Traded our “Dickies” for some new blue jeans
They don’t rightly fit, they’re way too tight
When I wear ‘em, my voice starts to sound real high

Ya’ll need to consider who you’re dealing with
We’re all grown men, not high school kids
We don’t like bending to be so hard
We like loose blue jeans not leotards

Come on fellers, won’t you help us, please
Give us back our “Dickies” loose blue jeans
We don’t really care ‘bout tryin to look “buff”
Come on fellers, loosen up

    I agree with my fellow poet Thad, there's a time for loose and tight, work definitely seems a time for loose, comfort is what we need during that time.

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
