Old Grey Shirt

When I think about it, my old grey shirt and I have been on quite a journey together.
It has accompanied me through thick and thin for many years,
Appearing at key moments in lots of photos, my historic attire.

Wearing a shirt such as mine, you can't go wrong with a neutral colour like grey -
And I never stand out; it goes with anything I wear, from difficult greens to well...
Difficult greens!

I bought that shirt five years ago or so, maybe longer, who knows?
I'm sure it's only a Primark label; why would I have gone elsewhere to spend more?!

My old grey shirt and I have been through a lot together, we really have.
It will be sad to see him go but one day I know he will have to.
Feeling a little choked up to be honest, not so much for the shirt but for what we've done.

So, what am I going to replace him with when he finally shreds...

I know, how about a brand new grey shirt?

Only this time with buttoned-down collar!
