The Darn Sock Connection, a parody

Why are there so many
Socks in the dish pan?
I think that the boys have lied.

Socks aren’t a weapon;
Aren’t doilies or dishes.
They shouldn’t be balled up or tied.
So boys’ve been scolded; I doubt they
Were list’ning.
Their feet will be cold, wait and see.

One day I’ll miss it:
The clothes never flying;
And dishes, instead of hos’ery.

    While I was reading your poem, I was listening to the song “If you Knew Suzie” and it synchronizes with your lyrics as well…

    Brought back memories of the balled up sock fights I used to have with the grandkids. You should try it sometimes. Though you do find socks in strange places a year later.
