Out Of Style

I walked into a store
Asked for a simple dress
Lady offered two
A black and a gray
I shook my head and said, “No, thanks, that’s not what I want to wear.”

Shop owner had the nerve to say
“You’re out of style. This is what is in nowadays”

Well, I’ll be damned

If I’m going to change
Wear something unflattering
Just because someone else says

“This is in style”

I don’t wear gray, it’s such a dreary shade.

I like my jeans low and not high on my waist

Like my shirts to fit, not make me look like I’m due anyday

I still wear the cowboy boots
A family friend bought in 1976

I might be out of her style but I damn sure got mine.
