Dressing For Town

An exciting morning – shopping
in town spending pocket money
in between Mum’s errands.

Svelte chic for the eight year
old with close fitting jeans
geometric zigzagged cardigan
buttoned to the neck, hair
neatly tied back, irridescent
pink flats with tiny bows.

Femininity for the six year old
pink shirt starred leggings
under smart denim skirt complete
with heart covered sneakers.
Last of all a necklace teaming
with sparkly dangly hair ties.

Mum quickly dons smart jeans
shirt, flats, applies makeup
combs hair, puts on ear ring.

Little brother wears striped
leggings, cowboy sweatshirt,
cute little sneakers, his first ever.

His special comb goes over
his tight curly thatch . Oh no !
Loud screams ! How could she !
She’s combing his hair !

Three smartly dressed ladies
drive off to town with tidy
tear stained little brother
buckled firmly in his seat.
