  4. What to Wear Where by J. Patrick Lewis
What to Wear Where

Related Poem Content Details

When I was a boy
In Looziana,
We wore blue jeans
And a red bandanna.
 
My folks moved up
To the state of Maine,
We wore duck shoes
In slicker-suit rain.
 
My folks moved down
To the state of Texas,
We wore brand names
Like Lazy X’s.
 
Now that we’re living
It up in Vermont,
We wear pretty much
Whatever we want.
