Black Fashion

I wont pretend that I don’t bend
to fashion’s funny game
Like I don’t strut for perfect cut
and color cloth and name

Though black and poor my mother wore
The silks and linens too
My father known for custom sewn
and tassel on his shoe

But what they taught besides what’s bought
is all I’ve truly got
They’d say fabric tears with many wears
but baby you must not
