Ode to My Shoes


Ode to My Shoes

From the tip of your tongue

To your very sole.

You support me wherever I go.

And if I sometimes take you off

I hope I’m not putting you off

We’re too tightly laced together

For that.

You have uppers

But you never take them.

And if I need a toe

You have two of them.

You’re made by last,

And we’re made to last

Even though I walk all over you.

I won’t give you the boot,


You’re so important to me

I can barely stand it.
