On Receiving an ROTC Uniform

Don't blame me if I have no clothes -
No joyous ties or frenzied hose.
IOf you don't like my O.D. kit,
Remember they're a G.I. fit.
My blouse is tight; my cap is large;
"They fit you," said the Issue Sarge.
"They fit me," Yes; Likell they do!
I wear them though, and so would you.
My shoes are large; they will not shine.
The pants I wear cannot be mine!
My leggins look like burlap bags,
The kind they give away for rags.
This "unyform" gives me the blues;
I wanna wear my yaller shoes!
I wanna wear my baggy pants!
I wanna wear them to a dance!
I wanna use the things I wear -
Wil Allah damn this "militaire"?
The Blind Tiger.
