Come As You Are

I should be wearing silver,
A shiny metallic raincoat would do,
With a black hood (from a hoodie underneath?),
And a bright yellow label stuck on my forehead that reads,
“WARNING: CONTENTS EXTREMELY VOLATILE
AND UNDER HIGH PRESSURE.”
 
I should be wearing a conical orange skirt
Of some sort of stiff and sturdy fabric,
With an orange and white horizontally striped halter top,
And a novelty store headband,
I’m sure I could find one on-line,
That has a round flashing light stuck on top.
 
I should be wearing a straightjacket,
There's a costume store nearby that ought to have them,
With a bunch of padlocks (some obviously broken),
And one of them should dangle an oversized manila shipping tag
That says, “If Found, Please Return To:
[Insert Name of Local Asylum Here].”
 
But, I’m not. Too bad for others.
