My mother wore a duster (Or a housedress) ‘round the house, Which was once the garb of women (Even lacking kids or spouse). It was likely made of cotton In a shift-style meant for ease, Much more comfortable for housework Than a pair of dungarees. I’m not sure if stores still sell them But the reasoning was right, For when I’m at home I’m wearing Clothes the opposite of tight. They may be quite old and baggy But they’re just the togs for me Since the most important rule of home Is comfort is the key.
