The Place Where Socks Go
There's a place where socks go
when the washing is done
and the driers have dried
and the spinners have spun
and it's past eight o'clock
and there's no one about
and the launderette's locked—
then the odd socks come out.
There is hosiery here
of each pattern and hue—
some plain, striped or spotted,
some black, red or blue—
some worn only once,
some so old they have formed
to exactly the shape
of the foot they once warmed—
some were brought back from Sock Shops
in airports in ...
In the end we have to state
that no agreement was reached.
His stubborn opposition to compromise
was never breached.
Talks went on through the night
to meet Friday’s deadline.
Even the governor was woken early
