Day 21-New Shoes-NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015

New Shoes

The other shoe dropped?
Well, ain't that sad.
Go get another pair,
the best you ever had!

Don't have scratch?
Pocket kinda empty?
Well, ain't you lucky?
The Universe got plenty!

You got no trust?
You frettin' and your worried?
Sit back and relax,
good luck can't be hurried.

You get so mad,
you just wanna sock it?
Hey, lookee here!
Found a fifty in your pocket!

Fabulous Nickolas Kirkwood shoes

  2. Very cute take on the prompt!

  3. Thanks, Rommy! Wanted to do something sort of folksy!

  4. It is funny and folksy, has that ring to it. Good work. :-)

    1. Thanks! Sometimes you just have to go funny or cry! Lol

  5. I just squealed with delight. I totally want to hear Reba McEntire sing this one... It just sounds like the kind of song a girl smacks her thighs to and grins aloud.

    Love, love, love this!

    1. I will always hear Reba's voice on this now! I am so glad you enjoyed it!

  6. There are always be a silver lining in every cloud. My Uncle gave me that lesson on a get well card when I was in the second grade (about 6-7 years old). That's 40 years ago in my life, and I wish I had that card still, but at least I have the memory of reading it over and over. This poem reminded me of that precious memory. Thank you.

    1. I am so glad I could bring back a good memory!

  7. Wow! Hey buddy can you spare a dime!
    I seen the whole poem in my head! It was magnificent!

    1. Yes! Thanks, Debi! That is exactly what I was going for!
