Is Dressing Well An Olympic Event? Revolutionary ConTEXTing Sonnet

August 2, 2012

He voyaged far across the sea
To the isle of Her Majesty.
He sought assistance in how he dressed.
(He wanted to show his very best.)

His slacks were pressed, sharply creased.
With care shirts were ironed on top and beneath.
Unlike what he’d done so often before,
This time he thought about what he wore.

In the parade of nations he’d never be
The typical American, rude and ugly.
Instead he’d wear matched clothes with pride,
Reflecting what he felt of himself, inside.

Except for his athletic shoes: such a sight!
He’d taken from two pair one left, one right.
