The Missing Sock Poem by Angela Wybrow

The Missing Sock

Rating: 4.7

This afternoon, I had quite a big shock:
I discovered that I have a missing sock!
I put my socks inside the washing machine,
But now one sock is nowhere to be seen.

I started my hunt earlier - had a scout around,
But, as yet, the missing sock is still to be found.
It's not hung on the line or the clothes airer.
It needs to be reunited with me: its wearer.

The socks were one of my favourite pairs:
Light blue with a snowy white polar bear.
They also had stars sewn with silvery thread.
I've looked on the floor and inside my bed.

With a missing sock, I've no peace of mind;
That missing sock, I simply need to find.
It has to be somewhere within the house -
Or maybe it has been stolen by a mouse!

That poor little sock is all lonely and lost;
I'll do anything to retrieve it: whatever the cost.
I'm feeling quite upset, as I really do hate
The thought of it coping without its mate.

With the missing sock, I am quite obsessed,
And, until I have found it, I will not rest.
That missing sock, I will keep looking for
Until it's safe and sound back in its drawer.


It's a proven fact that UFOs or the MIB love to steal socks or was it gnomes I read about..? ? ? ? hmmm gotta think and research some more washing machines with agitators like to chew up socks night gowns and undies...funny poem good laugh for the day..

Really like this poem. It's funny and I can relate. I like the sound of the socks too they sound nice. You write poems on just about everything and very well too. Keep them coming. I enjoy reading them!
