National Poetry Month day 24

Shoe Sonnet

Party shoes can be a lot of fun
Matching colors to your favorite dress
Trying on until you find the one
That's just the one to make you look your best.

The shoes you wear to work are different still
Footwear maketh how you are perceived
Even when you work more than your fill
What's on your feet trumps what you may achieve.

Even when you're going to the gym
You find a shoe designed for any need
Who can know the best match for your limb,
When so much of advice is mixed with greed?

Yet none of these can ever be so sweet
As walking, dancing in just my own bare feet
