.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

To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
