Friday Philosophy: Out Where the Vest Begins


Down where the belt-clasp’s a little stronger,
Down where the pants should be an inch longer,
That’s where the vest begins.
Down where you wish you were a bit slighter,
Where the shirt that shows is a little whiter,
Where each day the buttons grow slowly tighter,
That’s where the vest begins.
Where each added pound is the cause of sighing,
When you know in your heart that scales aren’t lying
And you just have to guess when your shoes need tying,
That’s where the vest begins.

In preparation for the big feast next Thursday, I think we should all wear vests!
