The birth of OK

After rough Och Aye
met chique D'Accord
OK was born

a little bitty guy (un petit gars)
soon to be clad
in Denim: a cloth (de Nîmes)
originally woven in Provence,
badly tailored into trousers
resembling those
once worn by Genoan sailors
(de Gènes, corrupted into Jeans).

Ironically and typically, the current French for 'jeans' is 'un jean'. God help the French language!
