Rookie (1933 / Ennis Canada)


After years, I finally found shirts for sale with two breast pockets,
But you wont be able to find them and I’m no prophet,
I’m not sure where they were made and I don’t even care,
I’m not saying where I bought them as this is a secret affair.

I was surprised to find that they were even still made,
So I bought five and the saleslady was slightly dismayed,
And I’ll be back for more - different colors - some day soon,
Hope she still has some on that eventual afternoon.

Because the usual one pocket shirts can only hold so much,
Not two pairs of glasses, pencils, pens, notebooks and such
But you have been brain washed in the one-pocket craze,
I really feel sorry for you in your one-pocket malaise.

Poem of the Day

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
