Clean Free

I want to wear white to work.
Not Dark pants, but white hat, with razor red letters.
bright white like a Cheer commercial.
People would say,
“That boy is free.”
I would have no boss.
But I would do everything right
when no one is looking.
White shirt and serious caution
with my food and drink.
No tie.

    This is so good. I have to agree with Jamie, though. Pants are a good idea. Especially in the cold climes of Kansas.

      I’m thinking this may be a method for not having a job for long? Thank you for your comment, Victoria!

    This is super creative.

    sometimes, we do enjoy being out of normal box.

      Thank you, Jingle! Life is full of chaos right now, so I’m not sure I can meet the conditions, but I hope to participate in the next rally.
