If I Were A Shoe - Poem by vern eaker

If I were a shoe
Wonder what I’d do
Would I go out?
Or just lay about

If I were a shoe
I could go with you
Running or playing
On a beach laying
Socks stuffed inside
Maybe on a bike ride

If I were a shoe
A life half of two
Skipping or prancing
Jogging or dancing
Go for fast food
Or dinner for two

If I were a shoe
So many things to do
Sneaking and stalking
Climbing and walking
Accessorizing your clothes
Perhaps offending your nose

If I were a shoe
What I’d do with you
Travel near or far
Relax while in the car
Stroll around the mall
Or play, kick the ball

If I were a shoe
I would take care of you
Protect your feet
From the street
And morning dew
Yes even dog poo

If I were a shoe
I could comfort you
Safely covering your feet
Showing off to friends you meet
If I’m polished and kept clean
I emit a marvelous sheen

    I love shoe poems and this one is done very well.
    Life from the viewpoint of a shoe- it's not so bad at all,
    according to this. (Report) Reply
