The Mandalorian's Cape                [Part 2 of my Fashion Trilogy]

 

An original poem by Chrome Dome Mike Kimbro

 

Please read along to my Spoken Verse Performance.

 

 

VERSE 1

 

It's true, the years and I have not been friends.

 

All us Boomers are loosing muscle tissue.

 

Past a point, it's manifested in rear ends.

 

The best way to address it is the issue.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

Certain men may have never philandered,

 

They lack the ass required of a player.

 

But a mercenary set a new standard,

 

Hiding unsightly stuff with a cloth layer.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

While it's not new, credit Disney and Star Wars.

 

They put a cape on The Mandalorian.

 

Batman and Superman wear one, so does Thor,

 

But they had to stick to comic book canon.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Macho Mando had a plan.

 

Wore a cape to hide his can.

 

His rear view was unsightly.

 

Suggested a robot slightly.

 

Now every soldier of fortune,

 

Must hide the derriere portion.

 

Which would best help them to escape?

 

Donning dark colors or camo for a cape?

 

I'd have both: Basic black and Mossy Oak.

 

 

BRIDGE

 

But costume needs today have dictated,

 

That wearing a cape is way too outdated.

 

So what do they use to hide a flat butt?

 

 

Here in Kentucky, the Justified series,

 

Paints our residents to be hillbillies,

 

Who are somewhat prone to drug usage.

 

 

The complicated lead, one Raylin Givens,

 

Rounds up bad guys who ignore court summons.

 

While a jacket upgraded his plumage.

 

 

They can't pull one over on the audience.

 

Why every guy wears a coat is obvious.

 

But having them all in capes would of been dope.

 

 

There are some men who love layers of fabrics,

 

In films like "Lord of The Rings" and "The Matrix".

 

Except, of course, he who craves "The Precious".

 

 

VERSE 4

 

So gents, if your profile isn't perfect,

 

Haters can't criticize what they can't see.

 

Some might be inclined to change the subject,

 

Laud how that bithcin' cape suits you supremely.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Macho Mando had a plan.

 

Wore a cape to hide his can.

 

The rear view was unsightly.

 

Suggested a robot slightly.

 

Now every soldier of fortune,

 

Must hide the derriere portion.

 

Which would best help them to escape?

 

Donning dark colors or camo for a cape?

 

I'd have both: Basic black and Mossy Oak.

 

 

The End.
