Boots and Shoes


In the old west
It was desired -
Boots on
When they died.

(The wearer, able
And ready
To meet the challenges
Of the day.

And, of course,
When called to meet
St. Peter at the gates
Would be in proper dress.)

Shoes on the other hand
Restrict one's activities
And according to plan
Are oft removed.

(So it is said that one
Who has his shoes on
Is probably
In trouble.

And in meeting same
St. Peter at the gates
Shoes off puts one
In the proper state.)
