.5. Darn It


Nobody ever darns
Socks anymore
Mine with their holes in
Are left in a drawer

What a great waste
When there’s ever so many
Grey, black and blue
But brown haven’t any

Most of them nylon
With not many wool
Colours aren’t bright
I prefer my socks dull

Often in pairs
There is only one hole
Fully worn out
Having fulfilled its role

But what if I changed
And only wore black
Then for every two pairs
I would get one pair back

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
