Put A Sock In It - Poem by archie langford

In my wisdom it occurs to me
That a pair of socks should come in three,
It has always struck me as being queer,
How one sock seems to disappear,
If they had three socks per pair,
There would always be a sock to spare,
And so `twould minimize the shock
Of another disappearing sock.

    Archie, dear friend
    to differ, I beg.
    They would still need four
    for Jake the peg!
