Perhaps because I could never
find shoes I liked that would fit me
size 12 and cute, I mean never,
out of frustration it hit me;
if I want colorful footwear
departing the mall is the key.
To procure some footwear with flair
I need to get to the greenhouse.
I find all the shoes I want there.
Don’t have to match these shoes to blouse,
slipper orchids are quite divine
just need these shoes from the hothouse.
To them I make a quick beeline,
They are sure to fit every time.
(A Terza Rima poem)
