The crinoline skirt is a garment set to make a comeback, and not before time. Teamed with roller skates or skateboard beneath its capacious flare, a woman can glide across a room with all the elegance of a ghost.
Bring back, bring back the crinoline!
So much that can be hid within:
A skateboard on which you can ride,
Some flowers from the countryside,
A cage of birds, a herd of sheep,
Some chocolate bars, an army jeep,
A soccer ball, electric bass,
A silk top hat, a doctor’s case,
Some bicycles, performing rats,
A pack of gum, some acrobats,
The London Eye, a mastodon,
The list goes on, and on and on…
Just think, you’d never ever be alone
Inside that garment’s cage of bone
So think about what you’d put in
The space inside a crinoline.
