Poem: Ode to Swim Briefs

Ok, time for another poem attempt. This one is a look into my swim brief wearing. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it and some will relate.

Ode to Swim Briefs

Oh why are you so appealing to me.
It’s hard for me to be carefree.
But that is what I have to be.
To be able to wear you and feel free.

It took me many years to break you out.
Once I did it made me want to shout.
Why did it take me so long to come about?
I’ve been missing out without a doubt.

You hold me right and keep me cool.
I should have worn you when I was still in school.
I know I’ve been such a fool.
But society is nothing but a tool.

Now I can’t get enough of wearing you.
I’m always eager, but anxious too.
To slip you on to put you in view.
For me it is a great breakthrough.

I’m gaining the confidence to not give a hoot.
I now just drop my shorts to show my suit.
It’s probably a surprise to some while others may want to refute.
But I made the choice to lead by example and that is absolute.

It’s great to be free to wear what I please.
The support I receive helps put me at ease.
Even though being a lone swim brief wearer is not exactly a breeze.
It’s time to show the world more than my knees.

My thighs may be white, but in time that will dissipate.
I’ll slowly get them tanner, but hopefully it won’t be a long wait.
I’ll continue to wear my swim brief proudly at any rate.
I’ve been doing well sticking to my guns to wear them at the local beach to date.

We need to change society’s view.
There is no reason for people to stew.
They need to go buy a clue.
Form fitting swimwear is for guys too.

I will continue to do my part.
My swim briefs will be worn, but done so smart.
I will not take any negativity to heart.
My goal is for swim briefs to show up higher on the swimwear chart.

    Found myself singing this to the tune of Ode to Billy Joe by Bobby Gentry(great song,check it out on youtube if you don’t know it),which got me thinking that it is maybe time for a musical about swim briefs. After all,if they can do one about Cats,then why not swimwear? So Nate,if you’re up for the challenge and want to see the names Nate and T up alongside Webber &Rice,Rogers & Hammerstein,John &Taupin etc ,then let’s do it. Hopefully some of the blog’s loyal followers will get on board and suggest possible titles for our extravaganza e.g Last Tanga in Paris. The Thong Remains the Same. Dirty Pantsing. Crocodile Aussiebum and Strictly Speedo Ballroom. I’m tuning up my g-string(on my guitar)in readiness!

      Guess I better get writing. May take me up to 5 years to complete one. Though maybe that is just one scene. Sounds like you have the creative mind for writing and composing!

    Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory > Willy Wonka and the Speedo Factory
    Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs > Cloud with a Chance of Speedos
    The Silence of the Lambs > The Speedo of the Lambs

    Back to the Future > Back to the Speedo
    Raiders of the Lost Ark > Raiders of the Lost Speedo

      I don’t know some of them either. I did think some of them might be interesting as a cartoon or comic strip series.
