Second-Hand Sky

For once I was a first impression,
To catch a lady’s eye.
Though now I sit here on a rack,
Watching customers pass by.
Child, Mother, Mayor and maid,
Looking for something to buy.
Do my bright colours intrigue you,
I think I look like the sky.
My light blue cuffs and bright white tuffs,
do take four hours to dry.
But don’t you think if you had me,
Neighbours couldn’t help but say hi.
I’ll keep you warm, like many before, over a shirt and tie.
I wish you the best, for you’ll see me next on your neighbour who waves goodbye
