A wedding isn't just for bride or groom,
however much we hope the marriage sticks.
It's for the folks who must go shopping soon,
to throw some stylish fashion in the mix.
For women, such variety is there,
a hundred closets hardly scratch the surface
but for us men with little cash to spare
the choice is slim, no matter what our purpose.
Conservative and plain, the humble suit,
in grey or black, perhaps in brown or blue;
it tends to civilize the savage brute,
and gives some class to anything you do.
At times I tire of this attire, and yet
it makes me smile when I a new one get.
