Bought a brand new pair of shoes
What I was looking for
I’d been searching far and wide
From store to store to store

Finally found the color
And the style, width and size
Got them home and wore them
but much to my surprise…

When I walked, they creaked
It was very, very loud
Both shoes to be sure!
Why you could hear it in  crowd

I am not returning them
They took too long to find
They fit me so very well,
and the label says Anne Klein!


Guess what was once said is true…
There is no great beauty
                                           without a flaw or two –
SO –

I’ll walk the road untrodden
Stealthy, like a mouse
Knowing that in my very walk
I sound like a haunted house!
