One Set

Poem By Robert Brendan

I own fifty
me two hundred
one for every day of the week
and two for Sunday
my best

I have only on two occasions
that my memory gives
nods to
where I have owned more
than one pair of shoes.
Once, when I entered college
for the first time
I had two pairs.
and when I left college
also for the first time
I had two pairs then
as I write this
I own only one pair
of shoes
and while some people
might think that this
is why I am not bubbling
with gouts of joy all the
they are wrong

i also have never understood why anyone needs more than one pair of boots. my steelcapped DM's look after me fine.
