One Massive Shoe - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Look!
Up in the sky.

"WHAT,
On Earth is THAT? "

It ain't a bird or a plane.
That's for sure.
And...
It is getting closer.

"This is insane.
It appears to be,
One massive shoe.
Dropping no one can stop."

Whoa!
This is going to be devastating.
Especially for those,
Who prefer their delusions...
To be free of truth.
And designer proof.

"Look at the heel on that thing.
It certainly is going to put an end,
To accepted deception."

Where did it ever come from?
It can't be dropping from Heaven.
'Cause, I'm told,
Folks there are only issued sandals.
