The story of the yellow tights


There once was a girl who wanted yellow tights
She was tired of black ones and wanted something bright
She went to ASOS(before her online shopping embargo)
And found the perfect ones that she couldn't wait to show


They made her feel like a storybook girl
So she picked up her skirt and gave it a twirl
It wasn't till she caught sight of herself after
And realized why her co-workers errupted in laughter


Not only did her gams look like Atila the Hun's
But one leg already had one of the biggest runs
So with a pinch of nailpolish she put that to the stop
And decided to try again with a different skirt and top



Though she was going for a Kate Spade kind of feel
It ended up being an "Orange Grove" kind of deal
She decided she would only fit in if she found a citrus orchard
But she instead found a briar patch and was consequently tortured




And to make matters worse, she snagged the other thigh
Bye-bye yellow tights, you're just not going to fly

Great poem, haha. I actually really want a pair of white leggings, Weird, I know, but I have an idea of how to make them work.
