Bobbie Jo's Shoes

Bobbie Jo went
to town to buy
some shoes, but
once again she was
told, no shoes here.

'Now, Now repiled Bobbie
Jo, why no shoes.'
'Can't you see
Bobbie Jo, right,

in front of you,
the store burned
down last night.'

Poor Bobbie Joe,
she can't win,
for losing.

    Bobbie Joe is a wonderful character. Now we know she loves hats and shoes. It is to be hoped that we will hear more of her. Lovely write, Jim.

    Warm regards,

    Jim, I just loved the humour that ran through this lovely piece. The next time I go shopping for shoes I'll make sure the shop hasn't burnt down first. Top marks from me. Thanks for sharing it my friend.
