Creating the perfect capsule friend wardrobe

A good friend is this season’s must have,
Like a new pair of red footless tights.
You need a good mixture of textures,
Include pastels and some neon brights.

Great mates are a key wardrobe basic,
Friends are this winter’s new black.
Do read the care labels well though,
No receipts so you can’t take them back.

This is the product of my evening at The Steady Table writing group, where I am under pressure to write creatively, and not just reply to emails…

    Love it, who’s the plain white t-shirt & the comfy jeans??

    Love it mate, so glad you decided to share it. That’s what The Steady Table is all about! I reckon this would make an awesome poem for a funky girly card :)

      Funny you should say that, as I was just thinking the other day I could try my hand at the greetings card market! I could definitely be the next Edward Monkton.
