I Cannot See My Feet No More

I cannot see my feet no more;
I think they’re down there, on that floor
-Which also rests beyond my view
And holds those ‘lusive things called ‘shoes’-
…And more than bumbling me can know;
I oomph and eeek on stumbling toe.

It ’tisn’t fair, I amble, sigh;
Lamenting loss of pedi-sight.
That, as my motivation stops,
As belly button pokes and pops,
That I can’t see feet, floor or toe —
‘Cause I just dropped some cookie dough.

    Nice and whimsical. Sounds like you’re not past the cookie dough/apple sauce/ sauerkraut stage yet?

      😀 Actually, I have not enjoyed much cookie dough till now. This one’s not been much for sugar.

    Sit down. put your feet up and let all those boys wait on you…apart from losing sight of the feet, I hope all is well 🙂 The plus side… it gives you time to ponder on the letter I…just saying before I duck Hugs x

    love the humor in this, Chel; self deprecating humor, it has been said, is the highest kind 🙂
