A Pair of Shoes

Three pairs of sandals
And a running shoe or two
A pair of wood-and-leather clogs
Oh, what they've been through!

A pair of soggy rubber boots
(The left one leaks, you know)
But fine for taking out the trash
Or when the lawn I mow.

A pair of pumps, all sombre black
They match my favourite trews.
Such silly verse, 'twixt you and me,
And all for a pair of shoes!
