Poem: Old Footwear
They looked good, at first, together,
tight laced and polished smart,
but wear and tear destroyed them:
A tale to break your heart!
Life is viewed down low,
paths and pavements,
rough and smooth,
hot, cold, wet, dry,
standing, dancing, playing,
wear, wear, wear.
They cannot speak,
for their tongues are torn,
yet leathery wrinkles convey
that treatment is rough
and times are tough,
being trod on, day after day.
Down at heel,
scuffed at toe
and moving
’mongst the low,
their soles both left their bodies
cause the stitches, all, did go.
Adapted from a poem by Robert Armitage
