They were a fashionable couple, noted for their dress,
attired on all occasions with a unique finesse.
She dressed up on work days in a crinoline and sash.
He even wore a coat and tie when taking out the trash.
Her shape was rather pandurate—thinner in the middle
and very broad down by the hips, rather like a fiddle.
His hair was thin and patchy with many bald spots that
might have gone unnoticed if he had worn a hat.
So, though they dressed for fashion, they didn’t dress for shape.
He should have worn a tam and she should have worn a cape.
