Pair of socks
Well, there was these pair of socks
Actually, they were a used pair of socks.
Dirty, for want of a better term.
Anyway, just a PAIR OF SOCKS,
There they were quite innocent in their slumber
Until! I was asked, why they were sitting on the chair.
Seemed a logical place to me, totally uncomplicated
Setting: - a chair. Strangely others didn’t think so.
anyway, under great duress, to the socks.I put
Them in the machine, you may ask what sort of
Machine.A washing machine, is there
Any other sort of machine for, a smelly pair of socks.
I don’t think so, then of course there is
The bin.Thou maybe I should have just thrown
Them on the floor, the socks: -YOU KNOW
You may well ask yourself were this tale
Of the socks is heading, I haven’t a clue
Though in retrospect maybe I should
Have just asked the moldering socks did they
want to go in the machine they had been living here in
First place. you know, of course you know.
