#21 Shuck the Shoes

My bunions are gifts from my dad – they stay

there’s no magic pill that can whisk them away

but they make it hard to fit into shoes

that are pointy or narrow or give me the blues.

My flat feet are gifts from my children – all four

there’s no point in styling them down on the floor

they’ve grown three sizes since I was single

I guess it won’t hurt if I try on a shingle.

With trouble a’bending and puttin’ on airs

I best be barefootin’ than sitting on chairs.
