Socks in a box !



Socks in box !

Socks in a box!
Last Christmas, this Christmas,
and every Christmas;
Socks in a box!
Jane had knickers,
black lace and frilly.
I suppose they imagine
I'm too old for silly.
But socks in box ?
Not even coloured
or patterned or jazzy.
Do they really assume
that I wouldn't like snazzy?
Socks in box!
How boring is that?
There's more interest and style
in what they bought for the cat!
Even Janice had perfume,
musky and somewhat erotic;
but sock in a box?
Not my idea of exotic.
Well this year, I tell you,
they're all in for a shock.
For in each gift wrapped parcel
will be ... just one sock!
One sock for Anna.
One sock for John.
One sock for each of them
until, at last, they're all gone!
Socks in a box! Bah!

That reads like it was written from the heart, Nim - or, maybe, it was from the sole? ;-)

LOL! It was in response to a challenge on an authors forum. We were just given the word 'socks' and I remembered how my mother used to complain that, once she hit 70, people seemed to buy her nothing else but socks !
