Ron? Do you own a pair of white polyester slacks?

T'was in the Eighties I was cute,
When last I wore a leisure suit.
But twenty years and growing waist
Have forced a drastic change in taste.
Not white nor red nor green nor black --
I own no polyester slacks.

(I hesitate to ask what prompted THAT question. )

LMAO oh dear lord the image of that.....reminds me of chevy chase and the christmas vacation (not sure why, but the image flashed before my eyes...)

I had a dream last night
you came to me on silver wings of light
I flew away with you in painted sky
Was it real
Is it what you see,touch or feel

I noticed I left the 'i' out of the word question in my title..


Do you ever wonder if someone will answer an out of the ordinary question? LOL

So ... tested a theory and discovered an answer!

This is totally off track but did Ron's poem sound like Dr. Suess?  Sheesh, I am just having one of those days? LOL

Ron does not own pants of white,
Sometimes he might wear khaki.
Give this man some credit now
He knows that polyester's tacky.

I went to this really cool pub (hotel) a little while ago and its all decorated retro. It was great to see all the things around that I grew up with.
After the lunch rush the staff do a fashion show. Out comes all the polyester and crimpolene. Its really scarey cause I remember wearing some of that stuff.

Sigh. I try to be good I really do, but faced with poetic answers, I have to respond in kind. Please take this with a smile -


***
Weíre in the new millennium
Youíre still cute, at least to some
Though rounder and a little older
This girl wishes you would hold her
This isnít fiction, itís the facts
Iíll take with or without slacks!

White polyester slacks are still in style,
Now I hope to make that clear
By heading down to Florida
And asking the Balladeer?

Most golfers down in Florida,
Wear white slacks upon the green.
If youíve seen men in Florida golfing,
Youíd know just what I mean.


I think I better explain this thread,
Before it gets out of hand,
It all started with a dream of mine
That really was quite grand.


Florida is where my dream took place.
There was this handsome older man.
He bumped into our Poet Devine
In this dream, it was not our Nan!

He sent her books a flying
Quickly picking them up he said,
ďIíve been waiting for this moment,
Pinch me so I know that Iím not dead!Ē

She pinched him all right she did,
In the seat of his white polyester pants,
And there she felt the hardest thing ~
Good grief, the man had butt implants!

He said, ďNow you know my secret,
I hope to make this clear,
I wouldnít give up this butt, but for you
So just say the word my dear!"

She up and pushed him in a puddle,
His pants of white now black!
Man I hate those retro dreams,
In the life of this insomniac.

Ron, this thread has been such fun,
Sorry you weren't the man in my dream.
But ... I bet your butt in pants of white
Would the cutest butt weíve seen?

Címon in now all, and join the fun,
Poetically, letís hear it loud and clear,
Sharonís got Ron writing poetry
To protect his butt itís clear.

Who says the new millennium
is new for all us older PiPs?
Bell bottoms on Miss Heidi Klum?
And Brittney's pants are hugging hips?
The change in clothes is zero-sum,
as styles of old again eclipse
the age-old goal that men succumb
to promise of a woman's lips.

My polyester days are spent
and clothes are not what still attract,
but hugs will never cause dissent,
with or without 'fore-mentioned slacks.

Itís true that fashions tend to be
Reborn for each generation
But when will showing underwear
Stop being a fascination
The guys today seem to think
Itís cute to show their undies
They wear pants that are too big
That hug not hips but knees

A hug can be a delicious treat
When given with much affection
With or without your slacks
Iím sure yours are perfection!

No pants around the knees for me;
Even the thought is such a scare!
I'd look like Michael at the tee,
his polyester white aglare,
save the slacks would be illusory
since I don't wear underwear.

No underwear for the Wiz?
The thought sends me reeling
Polyester or corduroy
Each now sounds so appealing

That you would admit this
Kind sir, no boxer or jockey
Make me think that you are
More than a little bit cocky!

Attitudes not withstanding
(which I admit can't be denied)
I beg your kind understanding --
my reason is not as implied.

My lack of apparent decorum
wasn't meant to be so exposed,
but it's just like in the forums --
I'm waiting for "soon" to wash clothes.

What mundane reason given
For your intended unbaring
Twas my imagination that
Lept to conclusion daring

I guess itís time you brought me
Thudding back down to earth
But you understand how much
I enjoy sharing a bit of mirth!

Donít leave! This is just starting
Weíll discuss detergents and bleach
There is so much we could share
If we both learn and both teach

Did someone mention cleaning products?
Oh my gosh, they are my favorite things.
Even, a can of Pledge excites me
And the shine it always brings.

I love to vacuum rugs
See all the vacuum lines,
People avoid the fresh, neat pattern
Itís my theory, not Einsteinís.

Now I adore doing laundry,
But Ronís hint was not anticipated
However, I will give it a go,
And do my laundry butt naked!

I'm sure your neighbors watch
while Mysteria's houseworking
and laundry day is cause for
a lot of social smirking

Let's hope you own a washer
and a dryer in your flat
so you don't do your laundry
at the local laundromat!

Well I will have you know
No one here washes clothes that way,
We all wash them outside in a tub
Then, hang them out all day.

The water here is really hard
Thinking of importing water in.
I hear waterís soft in Michigan
But there I donít have any kin       *so sad*

Itís told they do their laundry
Mostly all of them, in the buff.
Only own two pair of underwear,
Everyday and church ones are enough!

I wonder how I can get some of that water,
From that great state of Michigan?
I donít think wanting to be comfortable
While washing is a sin?

You could send your laundry
to Ron by UPS
make sure to include
that lovely flowered dress!

Perhaps we'll take a road trip
An RV is all it takes
and we can do our laundry
in one of Michigan's lakes

He owns no polyester slacks
His verse I vouch to be the facts
Bread pudding topped with soft ice cream
Has led to wider waistly seamsÖ

He wears his fuzzies all day long
Elastic waistbands holding strongÖ
But some are also tied with string
Though they donít seem to hold a thingÖ

His laundryís hung up on the door
The closetís really such a chore
Because instead the TVís there!
This is the truth, it is, I swearÖ

The laundry sits in motley piles
Upon the rug and bathroom tiles
Heíll wash it ďsoon,Ē  cuz you know what?
The winter cold will freeze his butt
