Taking off your socks
before your shoes have properly been removed
is most likely not a very good idea.
Not only is it not a good idea,
but it is also a complete waste of time,
because in the end,
you will end up removing your shoes,
anyways. I believe this is why some people
avoid the sock question,
and simply skip the sock part
of the normal morning routine.
Besides, it saves money
and lots of time when laundry day comes around;
socks always seem to lose their partners,
and are hard to match up.
Socks would make good dancing partners
because at some point in time,
they will most likely find themselves very lonely
when their other half disappears.
Maybe theyíve gone off
to have an affair with a shoe,
squeezing inside its life
until the shoe decides that no,
this is not working out.
This stinks, and really, itís not you,
itís me; I need breathing room.
Some socks are distant and unsocial;
they prefer to disappear completely,
hiding behind washers and dryers,
content to sulk in dust
and the miserable company
of other stray socks, for they are lonely, too.
But I still think
That some socks just want dancing partners.
