My Faulty Magic Shoes. By CpSingleton © 2014
I bought a pair of magic shoes,
They were tanned soft-sued.
The tag attached claimed loudly
That they were the best shoes ever made!
I stuffed my feet into them and
Wished for emerald seas.
Alas my shoes merely sat statically
Just below my knees.
I didn’t move a muscle,
Just in case the spell was slow,
But, after six and twenty minutes had passed
The power still didn’t show!
Then it was that my eyes perceived
A tiny scrap of blue.
On it were instructions if
The magic didn’t brew.
It clearly, boldly read…
If at first your shoes are static
Get a boat instead.
