vest and pants

tags: , , , ,

you in your best vest

me in my plastic pants

you’ll knock me up

to hang out


A poem  written primarily for None-USA English speakers.   Inspired by multiple miner difficulties at various stages in my enculturation to the USA such as attempting to find a quality waistcoat (vest) to wear with my tail jacket,   being told I was wearing nice pants (trousers),   being told I would be knocked-up (called for) in the morning and being invited to hang out (come out to play).   Not to mention a funnier, clever, poem about a vest by a professional poet,   so I wont mention it.

    !!! I have NEVER heard “knock up” to mean anything other than impregnation. That person must have been having a bit of fun at your expense?
