SOMETHING’S NOT AFOOT!

SOMETHING’S NOT AFOOT!

Went to bed with both shoes on,

For a nap my sheets upon…

Uneven stance

When rising, chanced

To see which shoe had not stayed on.

My left shoe or slipper, see,

Is the one kicked off normally…

But it was elevated

Edema to have abated,

Immobilized, essentially!

Imagine the queer feeling

Of sitting up, revealing

The right shoe gone

And the left still on…

So why all this useless squealing?????
