To Pants

You are always there

Keeping legs warm

And groins hidden

Holding our keys and wallets

As we go about our day

You come in many forms

Some to swim

Others to hug and lift

Even those that hide

Beneath their larger brethren

We use you for all tasks

Carrier of essentials

Hider of shame

Napkin on the go

Your jobs know no bounds

The abuse that you withstand

Shredded knees

Frayed cuffs

Eternal stains

Of long forgotten sources

Do you believe

That we take you for granted

Wearing you out

And never giving thanks

Before we throw you out

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles Yallowitz was born and raised on Long Island, NY, but he has spent most of his life wandering his own imagination in a blissful haze. Occasionally, he would return from this world for the necessities such as food, showers, and Saturday morning cartoons. One day he returned from his imagination and decided he would share his stories with the world. After his wife decided that she was tired of hearing the same stories repeatedly, she convinced him that it would make more sense to follow his dream of being a fantasy author. So, locked within the house under orders to shut up and get to work, Charles brings you Legends of Windemere. He looks forward to sharing all of his stories with you and his wife is happy he finally has someone else to play with.

    Love!! What an interesting tribute to pants! :)

  2. Clever! Would make great script for a Calvin Kline or Levi commercial. :-)

    I love it! Ode to pants! Also love the new format. It’s nice to have the colorful cool of the trees in the background while keeping it clean in the field where you’re trying to read. Like like like.

      Thanks. I was hoping people would get a kick out of the pants poem. It definitely looks a lot better and clearer than the last one. Guess my curiosity-induced icon click that undid the old theme was a smart move.
