Simply had to lighten up on the old shoe theme…
Hard to explain why you need so many pairs of shoes you only wear occasionally, hope this goes some way….
More procrastination — unfortunately posting this has taken longer than actually writing it, I was hoping to include the most divine image of a pair of summer, red soled shoes….
Ah, well, we can but dream!
By Geraldine Hogan.
The heels are high,
The toes are tight,
The leathers soft,
They look just right.
They talk to me,
From their Prada shelf,
They help me be anyone
– except myself.
And all those noughts are not so much,
When you actually get to touch,
Their Italian leather comfy sole,
It’s like they are made to measure,
Yours to treasure;
And it’s not an awful lot of noughts,
Not when you consider –
It’s such a pretty little slipper,
The price of a flat, a car, a cruise,
All a little more than those new shoes.
I’ll wear them everyday, I promise,
A flash of plastic for a Goddess.
I’ll ring the bank,
Try to explain,
My shoe addiction won out again.
