Shoe Relief....... [Shoe Misery; Humor; Good Foot Etiquette]

You’ve heard before “My shoes are killing me! ” and “Boy my feet are sore”,
but have you ever thought of what it’s like,...... for the SHOES which pound the floor?

“Dang! ” said the right shoe when the kid kicked a sharp rock in a fit,
and “Yuck! ” said the left shoe when the jogger slipped on shit.

“Good grief” cried out the pair of shoes when the dirty feet began to sweat.
And, at mile 42 of a 50-mile hike, the hiking shoes said “Aren’t we there YET? ”

Yes, your shoes take a beating from you; at times they endure a horrid smell.
If shoes could really speak, they might say “You put us through Shoe Hell! ”

So humans, wash your feet AND socks, and watch out where you step.
If you have respect for shoes, and give them relief,.... then they will have more pep.

    My shoes don't need relief. They have never complained about me, despite my last pair of trainers smelling like something has died in them. No, my shoes need to work harder for me (Report) Reply
