Not Under the Collar
I deplore the decline of the tie.
I’m a liberal, tolerant guy,
But humanity’s end
Is foretold by this trend,
And it’s one I am pledged to defy.
Surely only a bumpkin would vote
For the naked display of his throat.
To be seen sans cravate,
Is just wrong, and that’s that!
Fellow yeomen of England, take note.
It’s a dreadful demeaning of dress,
And I blame it upon the US,
Who invented the “T.”
It is quite clear to me,
They have instincts they need to suppress!
For what’s next if we don’t stop the rot?
Maybe, heaven forfend, sans culottes?
Who would not look askance
If men stopped wearing pants?
(Which I fear is more likely than not.)
Be they wide, be they bow, be they thin,
Ties deserve pride of place, ‘neath the chin.
Striped or spotted or plain,
Knot them not with disdain.
Come! Let’s purge this sartorial sin!
Now’s the moment for action, I say!
Carpe diem, my friends! Seize the day!
Wrest our nation from Hell.
