The Clothes Make the Man

The clothes make the man

as well as anything can

he can change your mind

because he’s looking so fine

but what of character

do we not understand?

it’s

while that unwitting pretty boy

of style

walks in his shadow

in pain

owning up to nothing

but a poser

in vain

talking

standing in a plate of sand

telling you

a man’s words

binds him

to

‘walking the walk’

that only

real men don’t balk

real men do

but they don’t talk

about nothin’

cept’ keepin’

their promises

in

that his words

never making him a man

until he makes his stand

in desecrated

water colored shoes

of

the

tainted

forgotten

American
