MAGGIE’S SHOES

DON’T  WANNA  WALK  IN  MAGGIE’S  SHOES   NO  MORE

Last night I walked a mile in a famous poet’s shoes

Now all wet & sullied   She the first to publish me

 

So had my promise been muddied?  Writing whimsy

& deadpan   Genuflecting at the BIG BOXY BOOKSTORE

 

Oh how can I return the shoes?  They will need to be dried

& polished   And what about the soles   now filled with holes

and crusty   Or maybe I’ll just  KEEP THEM

 

And in a perfect ruby-slipper world   I will own her genius
