Don’t forget to thank the shoe
The protection from the ground and you
A necessity of the industrial revolution
To keep you feet clean from pollution

It used to be that you could walk around
Barefoot – All there was, was ground
The dirt felt good between your toes
And you forgot about your worries and woes,

But times they have changed
And now we walk on pavement

So thank your shoe!
It doesn’t suck when you step in poo

Or on a needle
Or on a piece of glass
And lots of rocks and dirt you’ll pass

You don’t think twice
But if your shoe could feel
It might say a great deal
Hey, I have some advice

How about you don’t step on that
It hurts when you kick a rat
Protecting you from things you can’t foresee
You can’t get between my shoes and me

    what a graceful piece of art,
    shoes are our protections,
    without it,
    it is hard for us to go places,
    not to mention working or enjoying life…

    love your poem!
