Who would have guessed it?
One day in the year
A celebration of knickers
And all underwear
Who would have thought it?
A day that will see
The gala for boxer shorts go
All crazy party!
Who’d have considered
A lingerie fete
For it’s National Underwear Day
In the United States!

Out on the streets, the girl in pink
All done up to the nines
With hair that hangs in white blond curls
And lips as red as wine
Eyes made up to appeal; look huge
Topped off with lashes long
And heels so high she tripped a bit
But then there was the thong!
The thong that wedged between her cheeks
Sat proud for all to see
As skirt rode up around her waist
And bottom lagged sadly
Just low enough to pop out from
Her hemline – what a sight
Save still her tummy that so fought
For space in dress so tight
But still she seemed to have a laugh
A ball and so much fun
To gallivant and have a scream
Not caring what she’s done
Or worn (or not), she’s just intent
On living on the edge
Enjoying every minute of
Life and that’s her pledge
