In Praise of my Slippers

I’ve had every kind of slipper

Sexy leopard print to black

I’ve loved them all with passion

‘Cos my slippers have my back


Shoes can be disloyal

They will rub and pinch and nip

They make your gait uneven

Like they mean for you to trip


You don’t get that with slippers

They would never do you harm

When I feel their furry insole

I’m immediately calm


I can walk into a chair leg

And never break a toe

And they grip the wooden flooring

As I scurry to and fro


I might sound like a nanna

Since I really want to yell

That I bloody love my slippers

Despite their rancid smell
